This book is a marvelous journey that starts from Nowhere and ends at Now-Here. Mar 22, Tamara rated it really liked it. In my quest for knowledge and insight, philosophy has been one area of growing interest and authors like Alan Watts are the reason I keep coming back for more. He is so laid back and down-to-Earth in his approach to explaining the cosmic and daily questions like "What Are We Doing?

Jun 07, Steve Woods rated it it was amazing Shelves: psychology-psychotherapy , spirituality , buddhism. This book is a very personal collection of essays about subjects which were clearly close to Watts' heart. I have always enjoyed his work and as well as feeling that his self proclaimed title of "spiritual entertainer well deserved the precision of his argument and the depth of his understanding of the human condition and an encyclopaedic knowledge have produced for me some life changing realisations as I have progressed along the path of practice. The appeal of this collection is that it is very This book is a very personal collection of essays about subjects which were clearly close to Watts' heart.
The appeal of this collection is that it is very personal and delivered in a conversational way such that at times I had the sense of the great man was in my presence whispering just over my shoulder.

Not only entertaining but some of the essays here sum up the conclusions I have come to myself about being human and about some of the more ridiculous indulgences of my race, particularly religion; particularly the big three Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
In the balance, both individually and as a cartel, probably responsible for more destruction and human suffering than any other phenomenon in human history. Fantasy when presented as fact to be proselytized at the point of a sword if necessary, all have run rivers of blood and destroyed much that was good in the world in the name of faith in the fairy tale.
The substance of the value system of the west and the philosophical underpinnings of daily existence in western industrialized countries also comes in for some meticulous dis assembly. We ll we might consider the arguments for the prescience of Watts thought many of these notes were written in the 70's is now coming to a gloomy pass; and like lemmings our societies persist in their delusional drive towards the cliff face. A great read. Jan 30, Tom Newman rated it it was amazing.

I've personally listened to hundreds of hours worth of Watts' lectures, many of which are revisitations o Cloud-Hidden, Whereabouts Unknown: a delightful and unsettling, charming and provoking collection of essays written by Alan Watts in his cabin at Mt. I've personally listened to hundreds of hours worth of Watts' lectures, many of which are revisitations of material already traversed.
It's impossible to be bored listening to him, his manner and quality of voice are far too compelling. It's no surprise then that his written work is every bit as absorbing as his spoken material being able to give his own voice the words on the page helps.

There are good points, but I need to read, reread, then ponder, and maybe I get a glimpse of what he's saying. May 1, Time to say good by. Cloud Hidden has been laying around my attempt to read pile long enough. Jun 08, Diana Sandberg rated it did not like it Shelves: philosophy , biography-memoir. Oh my dear, how very dated this is. It is something of a memoir and something of a work of philosophy, written in the late s about some time Watts spent in a cabin on Mount Tamalpais, just north of San Francisco.
I was a young woman at the time this book came out, very much a hippie. Watts was widely revered - and not just by hippies. My own parents, perhaps, I now think, influenced by my bluestocking and rich great-aunt, considered him a leading intellectual. I'm sure I've read essays and Oh my dear, how very dated this is. I'm sure I've read essays and commentary by him that were neither facile nor foolish, but to my surprise and disappointment, I found this book to be both. His remarks on the joys of free love sound smug and entitled. Shelves: religion. Alan Watts, himself introduced to me by Mom; Allen Ginsberg; Kelly Fox, my World Civilizations teacher; and a couple of friends introduced me to Eastern religions and philosophies in high school.
I went from there to taking a couple of courses on the subject, read many of the primary texts and even became acquainted with some real Buddhist monks of several persuasions, but still I'd return to Watts for old times' sake and because he'd always addressed me familiarly and clearly. This book, a colle Alan Watts, himself introduced to me by Mom; Allen Ginsberg; Kelly Fox, my World Civilizations teacher; and a couple of friends introduced me to Eastern religions and philosophies in high school.
This book, a collection, has some essays which delighted and others which rather bored me--thus the middling rating. As ever, the perspective is Watts' own fusion of Zen and Taoism. View 2 comments.
