Book Description Souvenir Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 129 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book explores an unrecognised but mighty taboo our tacit conspiracy to ignore who, or what, we really are. We are therefore in urgent need of a sense of our own existence which is in accord with the physical facts and which over comes our feeling of alienation from the universe. Alan Watts asks what is the cause of the illusion that the self is a separate ego, housed in a bag of skin, and which confronts a universe of physical objects that are alien to it. Rather a person s identity (their ego) binds them to the physical universe, creating a relationship with their environment and other people. The separation of the self and the physical world leads to the misuse of technology and the attempt to violently subjugate man s natural environment, leading to its destruction. Explaining man s role in the universe as a unique expression of the total universe, and interdependent on it, Alan Watts offers a new understanding of personal identity. It reveals the mystery of existence, presenting an alternative to the feelings of alienation that is prevalent in Western society, and a vision of how we can come to understand the cosmic self that is within every living thing. Offering spiritual answers to the problems of a materialistic lifestyle, alienated from the natural world, Alan Watts is the voice of all who seek a deeper understanding of their own identity and role in the world.
