Synopses & Reviews
Alan Watts was one of the great teachers and philosophers of our time, and forty years after its first appearance his classic study The Way of Zen continues to make Western readers far more aware of, and responsive to, the richness of Zen Buddhism and its place within the context and variety of Eastern religion.
Of equal interest to the general reader and the serious student, The Way of Zen explores the origins and the history of Zen, then goes on to discuss its principles and practice, and its application to art and life. Watts saw Zen as "one of the most precious gifts of Asia to the world", and with his erudition and his infectious passion for the subject he made that gift wonderfully accessible. The Way of Zen is a definitive, and invaluable, overview.
