Alan Watts--here and now : contributions to psychology, philosophy, and religion( )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alan Watts--Here and Now explores the intellectual legacy and continuing relevance of a prolific writer and speaker who was a major influence on American culture during the latter half of the twentieth century. A thinker attuned to the spiritual malaise affecting the Western mind, Watts (1915-1973) provided intellectual and spiritual alternatives that helped shape the Beat culture of the 1950s and the counterculture of the 1960s. Well known for introducing Buddhist and Daoist spirituality to a wide Western audience, he also wrote on psychology, mysticism, and psychedelic experience. Many idolized Watts as a guru-mystic, yet he was also dismissed as intellectually shallow and as a mere popularizer of Asian religions (the "Norman Vincent Peale of Zen"). Both critical and appreciative, this edited volume locates Watts at the forefront of major paradigmatic shifts in Western intellectual life. Contributors explore how Watts's work resonates in present-day scholarship on psychospiritual transformation, Buddhism and psychotherapy, Daoism in the West, phenomenology and hermeneutics, humanistic and transpersonal psychology, mysticism, and ecofeminism, among other areas
Alan Watts--in the academy : essays and lectures by Alan Watts( )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 924 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To commemorate the 2015 centenary of the birth of Alan Watts (1915?1973), Peter J. Columbus and Donadrian L. Rice have assembled a much-needed collection of Watts?s scholarly essays and lectures. Compiled from professional journals, monographs, scholarly books, conferences, and symposia proceedings, the volume sheds valuable light on the developmental arc of Watts?s thinking about language and mysticism, Buddhism and Zen, Christianity, comparative religion, psychedelics, and psychology and psychotherapy. This definitive collection challenges Watts?s reputation as a?popularizer? or?philosophical entertainer,? revealing his concerns to be much more expansive and transdisciplinary than is suggested by the parochial?Zen Buddhist? label commonly affixed to his writings. The editors? authoritative introduction elucidates contemporary perspectives on Watts?s life and work, and supports a bold rethinking of his contributions to psychology, philosophy, and religion
