His drug-induced musings reminded me of the The Exegesis of Philip K. My hopes were partially fulfilled in the second half of the essay, in which Huxley examined the natural human urge to experience the world through the lens of any kind of drug or alcohol, and how this relates to current legal policy and common conceptions of mental well-being. As an aside, when I discussed the book with my father, I learned that he had worked with the psychiatrist Humphry Osmond at the Weyburn Mental Hospital in Saskatchewan during early experimentation with LSD.


You can see a great deal of Morrison’s persona distilled in this book, it would have been great if he borrowed a little more from its tone when he read it. And these non-representational nine-tenths of a Madonna or an Apostle may be just as important qualitatively as they are in quantity. While under the influence of mescalin, Huxley lost interest in relationships and all sorts of trivial pursuits necessary to sustain life in society. It is quite evident the man truly had a beautiful mind. There are more illuminating books on psychoactive substances, but this would perform well as a primer for those completely brainwashed into thinking that drug-takers are dazed hippies.

Jun 15, Nick Allen rated it it was ok Shelves: I thought about how old people always want to be ridiculously early for everything. The idea that the human brain can have knowledge of the entire universe, and the restriction of glucose to the brain keeps the mind from suppressing this knowledge, well I just don’t buy it.

Also the reference to Plato’s mistake was remarkable. As a background he deals with mescalin and its impact on body and mind. Refresh and try again. Full disclosure, I’m here because of The Doors The book takes the form of Huxley’s recollection of a mescaline trip that took place over the course of an afternoon in May If you’re like me, you’ve always avoided this book due to it being the namesake of the band, The Doors.

Books by Aldous Huxley. May 15, Walter Schutjens rated it it was amazing Shelves: I went into Aldous Huxley’s “The Doors of Perception” with no expectations, which is how a good friend told me I should approach any book rather than the spiritual and emotional awakening I have been spoiled into wanting, and so I was not surprised when I did not get one.

My father was a Doctor and he assisted in the research. I get the connection he’s trying to make between the artist mind and that of one on mind-altering drugs, it’s just that I don’t find it all that enthralling.

The Doors of Perception is a philosophical essay, released as a book, by Aldous Huxley. That is how our brain has evolved srte how we have risen to the top of the food chain but look at what we eat! See all 4 questions about The Doors of Perception…. This must’ve blown minds when it came out.

InHuxley boldly became the guinea pig of an experiment testing the effects of Mescaline active ingredient in Peyote on humans.
