The Supreme Identity is one of the more important among the earlier works by Alan Watts

The Supreme Identity is one of the more important among the earlier works by Alan Watts. It engages the reader with a rigorous theological discussion which is thought provoking yet mentally taxing. However, I would still recommend this one to anyone who wants to go right after the meat of Alan Watts' theology, or for those who wish read stuff from his earlier Christian stage as opposed to his later works, when he dealt almost exclusively with Eastern religion. 34 people found this helpful.

The Supreme Identity is one of the more important among the earlier works by Alan Watts. At times he lapses into hair-splitting minutae in examining theological issues, and the result is what the author himself admitted was a "sometimes tortuous argument".

Modern Civilization, Watts maintains, is in a state of chaos because its spiritual leadership has lost effective knowledge of man's true nature. Neither philosophy nor religion today gives us the consciousness that at the deepest center of our being exists an eternal reality, which in the West is called God. Yet only from this realization come the serenity and spiritual power necessary for a stable and creative society

Alan Watts (1915-1973) who held both a master's degree in theology and a doctorate of divinity, is best known as an interpreter of Zen Buddhism in particular, and Indian and Chinese philosophy in general. He authored more than 20 excellent books on the philosophy and psychology of religion, and lectured extensively, leaving behind a vast audio archive. With characteristic lucidity and humor Watts unravels the most obscure ontological and epistemological knots with the greatest of ease.

The Supreme Identity. One of the most influential of Alan Watts's early works, The Supreme Identity examines the reality of civilization's deteriorated spiritual state and offers solutions through a rigorous theological discussion on Eastern metaphysic and the Christian religion. By examining the minute details of theological issues, Watts challenges readers to reassess the essences of religions that before seemed so familiar and to perceive Vedantic "oneness" as a meeting ground of all things – "good" and "evil.

Simple fellow
An excellent book on oriental metaphysics. Persons that are not quite familiar with the subject will have a difficult time grasping what Alan Watts is trying to express.

Before you read this one, I would strongly suggest you read _Behold the Spirit_, which is more readable but just as profound as _The Supreme Identity_.

Arrived early and the book is in great shape! The print is a little small, but the book itself is perfect. Thank you!

Alan watts, what can I say, read it for yourself, before you can like it, hate it, denounce it, or proclaim it, read it. it is vibrant, it is relative, it is the work of a brilliant mind. But if you fear an honest cogent book, then perhaps you stay away from books that may expand your understanding of the divine within everything.

This is a study for those who are trying to find more meaning in Illumination and the purpose of being of the everything.. It is well written in an advanced style and would be difficult for someone just curious without some other study in the subject.It explains the connection of everything and the meaning of eternal. For beginners I would suggest Cosmic Consciousness by Dr R M Bucke.
Dr Bucke is a great primer and was my first understanding and toe dip in the subject over 40 years ago.

I carry this book everywhere. I find myself re-reading chapters, truly a book to read if your interested in the Infinite and finite. Or if your curious about the relation between Christian religion and eastern culture(Taoist, Buddhism, Hinduism). Being brought up a christian, it is refreshing to read this book. I now am doing my own research on The buddha, Krishna, and other cultures. At the same time, it's like I'm finding myself. Not all who wander are lost.
Great buy
