In my second blog post, I will be further exploring Huxley’s studies of psychoactive drugs and the concepts that he developed from those experiences. In particular, I am interested in the core concept known as “mind at large”. The idea of the brain being a complex set of filters is not unique to Huxley, so I will be making a short diversion into the works of the aforementioned C.D. Broad.
My third blog post will examine the impact of The Doors of Perception. Open support of psychoactive drugs and claims that they will lead to a greater understanding of life are still hot topics, and they generated a good deal of response, especially from religious leaders.
