The Doors of Perception
As only he can, Aldous Huxley explores the mind's remote frontiers and the unmapped areas of human consciousness. This astounding essay is among the most profound studies of the effects of mind-expanding drugs written in the 20th century.
It was on a Spring morning in 1953 that Aldous Huxley took some mescaline and came to a complete understanding of what William Blake had really meant. The Doors of Perception is Aldous Huxley's account of this experience.
