Book Description Random House USA Inc, United States, 1999. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Vintage Books ed. 201 x 130 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. At the root of human conflict is our fundamental misunderstanding of who we are. The illusion that we are isolated beings, unconnected to the rest of the universe, has led us to view the outside world with hostility, and has fueled our misuse of technology and our violent and hostile subjugation of the natural world. In The Book, philosopher Alan Watts provides us with a much-needed answer to the problem of personal identity, distilling and adapting the ancient Hindu philosophy of Vedanta to help us understand that the self is in fact the root and ground of the universe. In this mind-opening and revelatory work, Watts has crafted a primer on what it means to be human and a manual of initiation into the central mystery of existence.

Book Description Random House Book, 1989. Softcover. Book Condition: New. First edition. 13 x 20 cm. The Book: On the Taboo against Knowing Who You Are, authored by Alan Watts, is a book that emphasizes that the self and the body are not two different things, as is believed widely. It is rather an illusion, as the self is the ground and root for the whole universe. Summary of the Book Alan Watts was a philosopher who always highlighted the idea merging Western Science with the ancient Hindu philosophy of the Vedanta. And the most common belief that the soul and the body are separate entities does not accord with any Eastern philosophy or Western scientific knowledge. Watts also draws several insights from the Vedanta and places them in the contemporary Western scientific wisdom. He conveys through The Book that we should not be alienated from this enigmatic, extravagant universe. A must read for those who contemplate on identity, higher consciousness and existence. Printed Pages: 163. Bookseller Inventory # 97788
