What You'll Learn:
The late religion scholar and philosopher Alan Watts (1915-1973) observed many of life’s sure foundations that had been taken for granted as dependable and unshakable crumble throughout Western culture. This experience of getting the rug yanked out from under us time and again has filled many hearts with anxiety and left them grasping for a sense of security. But what if this stripping away of dogmatic certainty were a pathway to peace and a more intimate experience with life? In The Wisdom of Insecurity, Alan Watts invites us to embrace insecurity as a way to die to the illusory “I,” and discover new life and awareness awaiting us in the present moment.
