A well-respected interpreter and historian of Zen thought, who lived from 1915 to 1973, is captured here in the form of voice recordings of his lectures, as well as selections from his 1957 book, read by Ralph Blum. This is a satisfying audio lesson on Zen, which Watts says is a way of life fundamentally different from any religion or science and that has a rich history of thinking regarding the question of individual being in relation to the world. The combination of didactic abstracts from the master's writing and snippets of his voice (primitively recorded but compelling) will captivate listeners with all levels of interest in this way of life.
