Psychology
PSYCHEDELICS
The Uses and Implications
of Hallucinogenic Drugs
by Bernard Aaronson and
Humphry Osmond
In 1957 Dr. Humphry Osmond first coined theword "psychedelic" to describe the mind-expandingdrugs, then familiar to only a small minority ofresearchers and "acid-heads." In these remarkablyfew years, this term—and the drugs it refers tohave become household words. Ominous headlineshave warned us of their dangers, while MadisonAvenue has revelled in the delights of the psychedelicsub-culture.This book is a broad and serious inquiry into thismuch-discussed topic. It will enlighten and surprisethe uninitiated, as well as the frequent user. Itincludes first-hand reports of the nature of theexperience; recent scientific theories; the use ofpsychedelics in primitive and non-western cultures;and the sociology of drugs in our own society. Thereare also sections on the potential creative uses ofpsychedelics, from the enhancement of religiousexperience to the treatment of alcoholics and thedesign of mental hospitals.The contributors include noted scientists, psychologists, sociologists, and religious leaders. All ofthem help to throw some light on a subject which,in spite of the interest it generates, has produced agreat deal of misinformation. Government restrictions have in fact brought the progress of much-needed research almost to a halt. PSYCHEDELICS isa plea for—and an invitation to—enlightenment.
