Remembering Alan Watts
(January 6, 1915–November 16, 1973)

[1]159 words

Alan Watts was born on this day in 1915. A prolific scholar and dazzling stylist, Watts is best known as the chief popularizer of Asian philosophy for the Beat and Hippy movements, but he was also an original thinker in his own right and a quiet man of the Right. In commemoration of his birth, I wish to draw your attention to these works at Counter-Currents:

Note: James O’Meara’s essays on Watts have been collected in his book Mysticism after Modernism: Crowley, Evola, Neville, Watts, Colin Wilson & Other Populist Gurus [12] (Melbourne: Manticore, 2018)
