Alan Watts introduced millions of Western readers to Zen and other Eastern philosophies. But he is also recognized as a brilliant commentator on Judeo-Christian traditions as well as a celebrity philosopher who exemplified the ideas and lifestyle of the 1960s counterculture. In this compilation of controversial lectures that Watts delivered at American universities throughout the sixties he challenges readers to reevaluate Western culture's most hallowed constructs. Watts treads the familiar ground of interpreting Eastern traditions but he also covers new territory exploring the counterculture's basis in the ancient tribal and shamanic cultures of Asia Siberia and the Americas. In the process he addresses some of the era's most important questions: What is the nature of reality? How does an individual's relationship to society affect this reality? Filled with Watts's playful provocative style the talks show the remarkable scope of a philosopher at his prime exploring and defining the sixties counterculture as only Alan Watts could.
