Englewood Cliffs: Prentice-Hall, 1980. First edition. The author is a profesor of philosophy and mathematics, has written on the Tao, is an accomplished classical pianist and a profesional magician. Maybe no more need be said, but we will add this quote, "If you don't know what Zen is, no matter. On a purely rational level, no one knows what Zen is. Indeed, if one knew what Zen was, it would cease to be Zen. Trying to define Zen is like trying to define jazz. One cannot know what jazz really is unless one has heard it. As one jazz-ist said: 'Jazz is a feeling. It's a feeling you get when you know you're going to get a feeling.'" Faint yellow highlight on one page, otherwise very good condition in a very good dust jacket. Item #6558
