Alan W. Wattsrs"s ls"message for an age of anxietyrs" is as powerful today as it was when this modern classic was first published. We spend too much time trying to anticipate and plan for the future; too much time lamenting the past. We often miss the pleasures of the moment in our anxious efforts to ensure the next moment is as enjoyable. Drawing from Eastern philosophy and religion, Watts argues that it is only by acknowledging what we do not and cannot know, that we can find something truly worth knowing. In order to lead a fulfilling life, one must embrace the present-live fully in the now. Elegantly reasoned and lucidly written, this philosophical achievement contains all the wisdom and spirit that distinguished Wattsrs"s long career and resonates with us still.

Alan Wilson Watts was born in England in 1915. He was educated at King's School, Canterbury, and the Seabury-Western Theological Seminary in Illinois. Watts was an editor, minister, professor, graduate school dean, and research fellow of Harvard University. Watts has written over twenty books, primarily concerned with Eastern thought and Zen Buddhism in the West. He has lectured at colleges and universities as well, and created more than 500 radio talks which have been taped and circulated among non-profit and educational organizations. Watts died in 1973.
