Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Alan Watts (1915-1973) was a British philosopher, writer, and student of comparative religion best known for interpreting and popularizing Asian philosophies in the West. He authored more than 25 books, including The Book: On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are (Vintage, 1989).

From AudioFile

Alan Watts, a self-described "entertainer" or "stand-up philosopher," is well known for the more than two dozen books he wrote about Eastern wisdom traditions. But Watts was also a prolific and effective public speaker, and this production presents more than 12 hours of talks he gave on subjects such as spiritual seeking, Zen Buddhism, Hinduism, Daoism, and more. The recordings present the spontaneous and truculent sides of Watts and are a wonderful group of lectures for all those interested in these topics. While they don't form a coherent group around a single theme, they do fit together, presenting Watts's worldview and providing insights into the subjects he presented.

Alan Watts has a fantastic wry sense of humor and wonderful insights about religion, psychology, history and life in general. It is a pleasure listening to him and I am sad every time one disc ends knowing I am closer to running out of "new" Watts recordings. However, this collection of lectures has too many moments where the same story or nugget of wisdom is repeated almost verbatim from a CD earlier in the set. Out of Your Mind is more varied and expansive journey start to finish. I don't regret buying this and I certainly don't dislike it but I would suggest Out of Your Mind as a higher quality alternative.

I love this format as Alan Watts is so easy to listen to. He explains what are potentially complex issues in really straight forward terms and he can compare the western and eastern points of view in simple clear language. This is what makes the difference between him and other people I have listened to. The set itself takes a bit of time to get through as most of the 10 CD's are around 75 minutes long but for Alan Watts fans I don't think that would be a problem.

Alan Watts is very fond of quoting William Blake's aphorism "A Fool Who Persists in His Folly Will Become Wise," as a means of explaining Zen philosophy to western students. If you're already a fan of Alan Watts, that quotation sums up this lecture series perfectly.

Out of Your Mind is a much more thorough, and thoughtfully compiled set than this one is (MP3 download is available at significant savings: Out Of Your Mind: The Nature of Consciousness I). I do not regret the purchase in the least and have enjoyed listening to this presentation. However, it doesn't bear comparison with Out of Your Mind.

Much of this is similar to lectures given on the Out of Your Mind lecture series. Many are different recordings from different times, yet are nearly word for word. Sometimes this will lead Watts onto a different vignette of thought that contain tasty morsels of hitherto unheard wisdom.

This is a philosophical casserole containing left over bits that have been pieced together by the philosophers of capitalism over at SoundsTrue Media. I'm sorry to report that the same spaced-out obnoxious announcer and lame corporate mystic sounding guitar intros from the Out of Your Mind series is ever present on this collection.

All the same, I enjoyed the collection and would recommend it to anyone *after* they have listened to the Out of Your Mind lecture series. I've listened to the Out of Your Mind collection so many times, I tune it out now because I always know what Watts will say next.

It was while reading Watts ('The Wisdom of Insecurity') that it finally dawned on me what 'the experiencer is the experience' meant and 'felt' like. For those of us who need this kind of stuff explained to us...I haven't heard anyone put it any simpler than Watts (to me he goes well with J. Krishnamurti and Ram Dass). 'You're it!' can definitely point the way to being 'unstuck'. I don't have 'a way with words' like Alan does, so all I can say is listen to Alan and see for yourself.
