Alan Watts (1915-1973) was one of the first to interpret Eastern wisdom for a Western audience. Joan Watts, Alan’s eldest daughter, is the co-editor (along with her sister, Anne) of the new volume, The Collected Letters of Alan Watts, out now in hardback and paperback from New World Library (2017). This is second in a two-part series on the life of Alan Watts, featuring Joan and Anne Watts. You can check out Greg’s conversation with Anne Watts here.
