Deep down, most people think that happiness comes from having or doing something. Here,

in Alan Watts’s groundbreaking third book (originally published in 1940), he offers a

more challenging thesis: authentic happiness comes from embracing life as a whole in all

its contradictions and paradoxes, an attitude that Watts calls the "way of acceptance."
Drawing on Eastern philosophy, Western mysticism, and analytic psychology, Watts

demonstrates that happiness comes from accepting both the outer world around us and the

inner world inside us – the unconscious mind, with its irrational desires, lurking beyond

the awareness of the ego. Although written early in his career, The Meaning of Happiness

displays the hallmarks of his mature style: the crystal-clear writing, the homespun

analogies, the dry wit, and the breadth of knowledge that made Alan Watts one of the most

influential philosophers of his generation.
