Wei Wu Wei, an anonymous Westerner, joins Paul Reps, Alan Watts, and Philip Kapleau as one of the earliest and most profound interpreters of Zen Buddhism and Taoism. Well-read, educated at Oxford, and widely traveled, he brings a modern sensibility to the ancient texts.

Posthumous Pieces, the penultimate work in his series of eight spiritual classics, was not published after his death. Instead, he states, the words themselves are posthumous, as they can only approximate the reality of life. These profound essays and epigrams are "tombstones, a record of living intuitions." A master of the esoteric, Wei Wu Wei teaches by means of startling questions and pithy aphorisms: "We should never forget: What we are looking for is what is looking." A timeless treasure of Eastern philosophy.
