13. The "Mind-less" Scholar
Interactions with Japanese Buddhism - Explorations and Viewpoints in Twentieth Century Kyōto - Michael Pye
Alan Watts † [+]
Author and Lecturer
An indefatigable promulgator of Zen in North America, the British-born Alan Watts (1915 - 1973) published widely and did much to popularize Zen to the counter culture of the 1960s.
Here Watts writes of Suzuki as a "mind-less" scholar, that is, one who overcame the restrictions of ratiocination.
