The zen men
Alan Watts (1915-1973) was many things, one thing and all things and he convinced many of us that we, too, are just that. For more than 40 years, Alan Watts earned a reputation as a foremost interpreter of Eastern philosophies for the West. Today, all of Alan Watts' works remain fresh and valuable while pop-culture philosophy works have been dated. An introduction to the elusive, yet simple applications of zen to eastern consciousness still starts and ends with Alan Watts' words.
On our May 4 program, the guest is Alan's son, Mark Watts, who orchestrates his father's library of recordings, which have been preserved in the archives of the Electronic University, a non-profit organization dedicated to higher education. There is also an Alan Watts podcast available.
See the official news release here.
Mark will be in free-form conversation with Frank, offering a special introduction to his father's philosophies, with sound clips from the vast Alan Watts library.
It starts at 9 p.m. EST in the United States.
