Notes

First edition, first printing, of the author's final book, published posthumously. Alan W. Watts (1915-1973) was a seminal figure in the dissemination and popularization of Eastern philosophy throughout the West. Watts had intended further chapters on what Taoism could offer Western civilization, but died before he could complete them.
