History and Philosophy

Webmaster's picks:

alanwatts

Alan Watts was an Episcopal priest who left the ministry in 1950, moved to California, and became a Buddhist. He was a prolific speaker, educator, and broadcaster. When it comes to philosophy, I would say my beliefs are most closely aligned with those of Alan Watts. Out of Your Mind (Sounds True audio book) was a series of talks on his house boat in Sausalito.
