During the last decade of his life, Huxley became intentionally controversial and experimented with mescalin and LSD as part of his enquiries into the inner reaches of the mind. This book brings together the profound and revolutionary body of work which came out of these enquiries, including Huxleys' lectures, interviews, essays and letters.
