The Nature of Man (The Essence of Alan Watts; Book 5)

Card covers. Contents in unread, mint condition; card covers have light shelf wear with one soil mark front; binding is tight and square. "The concept of work and duty lies at the heart of Western thought. Grimly we face our goals. We see tasks as adversaries to master. We regard jobs, whether routine or creative, as projects to put behind us so that we can find pleasure elsewhere. In The Nature of Man Alan Watts shows that any activity can be a pleasure in itself. Life, he says, is a kind of dance - to be wholly enjoyed for what it is, not for where it leads."

He is among the leading Islamic thinkers in the West, with a large following around the world. But he has also been a lightning rod for controversy. Indeed, in 2004, Ramadan was prevented from entering the U.S. by the Bush administration and despite two appeals, supported by organizations like the American Academy of Religion and the ACLU, he was barred from the country until spring of 2010, when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton finally lifted the ban.

New Seeds of Contemplation

By Merton, Thomas

New Seeds of Contemplation by Merton, Thomas. Published by New Directions Press, New York, 1962. 8vo up to 9½" tall.297 pages. Quarter green cloth over green paper boards, gilt spine titles. Volume in mint, unread condition. Unclipped dustjacket has a tiny closed tear front flap seam and otherwise fine. New Seeds of Contemplation has served as a guide to the contemplative life for several generations of spiritual seekers. The word contemplation is itself somewhat problematical, according to Thomas Merton: "It can become almost a magic word, or if not magic, then 'inspirational,' which is almost as bad." In this modern Christian classic, Merton reveals contemplation to be nothing other than "life itself, fully awake, fully active, fully aware that it is alive." The thirty-nine short "seeds" that make up this book are intended to awaken and cultivate the contemplative, mystical dimension of the spiritual path for everyone.

Historians call this the Axial Age because of its central importance to humanity's spiritual development. Now, Karen Armstrong traces the rise and development of this transformative moment in history, examining the brilliant contributions to these traditions made by such figures as the Buddha, Socrates, Confucius and Ezekiel.
