From Luminary Philosopher Alan Watts, an Invitation to Dance with the Cosmos

“If you were God,” asked Alan Watts, “what kind of universe would you create? A perfect one free of suffering and drama? Or one filled with surprise and delight?”

From the 1950s to the 1970s, Eastern spiritual philosophies sparked in the West profound new ways of perceiving ourselves and the mysteries of reality. And from his first radio talks and live seminars of that era, Alan Watts was at the forefront—engaging, inspiring, and delighting listeners of all ages and beliefs.

With Just So, Watts illuminates three often-overlooked yet essential universals: connection, play, and pleasure. This exceptional collection includes three complementary seminars:

The Cosmic Network—on the interconnected web of the personal and the infinite

Ecological Awareness—reflections on how humanity and nature evolve through discovery and “purposeless” play

The Pursuit of Pleasure—how a true materialism connects us fully through our senses with others and to the natural flow of the cosmos

Along the way, you’ll explore many other themes, at turns humorous, prophetic, and more relevant today than ever. What unfolds is a liberating view of life that arises from possibility and the unpredictable—perfect and “just so” not in spite of its messy imperfections, but because of them.

Highlights

  • “The Which of which there is no whicher”—or, how modern life separates us from truly living, and how to find our way back
  • The emergent, self-organizing, “no-one-in-charge” intelligence of nature
  • On taking yourself not too seriously, but more sincerely
  • Discovering your place in the great flow of boundless and interconnected being
  • The subtle art of authentic and fully felt pleasure
  • Dancing versus plowing your way to fulfillment, and more
