The Dawdler’s Philosophy

Haunting the Margins - E3: Alan Watts

June 7, 2020

After another mammoth Dawdle, the Dawdlers finally return to the Margins seeking specters, and find this time the anti-improvement, anti-guru, self-improvement guru Alan Watts.  

They consider some of Mr. Watts' most controversial opinions with oodles of juicy quotes.  

As is the nature of considering the centrality / marginality of thinkers, many guests come to the party this week, but Alan has always loved an audience!  

Wrap up your kashaya, assume the lotus, and get yer enlightenment-- sucka!
