The Book: On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are.

Alan Watts.

New York, NY Random House: Pantheon Books, 1966. Hardcover First Edition [1966]; First Printing, so stated. First Edition [1966]; First Printing, so stated. Near Fine in Fair DJ: The Book shows a mild bump at the top edge of the rear panel, near the corner, and a bit of crimping to the heel of the backstirp; else flawless; the binding is square and secure; the text is clean. The DJ shows indications of considerable abuse: the lower half of the backstrip is chipped away; lesser chip loss elsewhere; a little rubbing and much soiling; the price has been clipped; mylar-protected to prevent further deteriorization (but we fear the horse has left the barn in this case). Lovely book in a tatty DJ. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. x, 146 pages. Hardback with DJ. The book that most succinctly stated Watts's case for an interpretation of human nature that borrowed from Eastern religions and the mystical experience to attempt to shed the mind-body dualism of Western culture and religion, which he argues artificially -- and incorrectly -- separates us from our environment, our world, and ultimately ourselves. Watts was one of the early advocates of Zen in the West, and his books typically have an aspect of comparative religion, translating one culture's concepts into another's vocabulary. This one is the one that attempts most resolutely to delineate his insights and definitions in terms that are secular and Western; it also helped to provide the vocabulary for a generation that was experimenting with consciousness-altering psychedelic drugs, whose effects were often described in terms borrowed from the literature of Eastern mysticism.

The Book: On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are

Watts, Alan

New York: Pantheon Books, 1966. First printing stated on copyright page. Very good plus with minor closed tear at base of spine and a touch of foxing to front endpapers, otherwise bright and clean. In a very good minus dust jacket ($4.95 price intact) missing top 1.5 inches of spine but otherwise in nice shape with minor wear and slight darkening to spine. A nice copy of a title rarely found in collectible condition. In this classic work, Watts provides a much-needed answer to the problem of personal identity, distilling and adapting the Hindu philosophy of Vedanta. He explains that 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. To help us understand that the self is in fact the root and ground of the universe, Watts has crafted a revelatory primer on what it means to be human--and a mind-opening manual of initiation into the central mystery of existence.. 1st Edition.

Alan Watts

Random House Book, 1989. First edition. Softcover. New. 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.
