The Book On The Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are - Alan Watts
A seminal work in creating an environmental consciousness, Alan Watts was a spokesman for the 1960’s counterculture and his work is more relevant today than ever.
Alan Watts overturns the illusion that individuals are merely 'egos' contained within their bodies who are separate from the rest of the universe. Drawing on the Vedanta religion, Alan Watts explains how a person's identity makes them the centre of the universe, and outlines that the universe has meaning only if each individual places himself at the centre of it.
"Offering spiritual answers to the problems of a materialistic lifestyle, alienated from the natural world, Watts is the voice of all who seek a deeper understanding of their own identity and role in the world. -- Watkins Review
