Huxley seems to be trying to draw these disparate facts together to mean something more than ‘the brain is a curious little bugger that can teach us much about humility if only we take the trouble to learn how to wring it in just the right manner’ – and I can’t for the life of me figure out what that thing pfrcepcin.

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.

Is there other books that are similar to this, I mean Ive been looking for a book as creative and realistic as this but couldn’t find any. Like the persuasive argument today about how tobacco and alcohol are far more harmful than illegal pot, Huxley goes on to articulate how mescaline is the more spiritual and beneficial for society and even for religion.

Although I did get a lot out of this book, the single thing that really made an impact was the discussion of our brain as a sensory-limiting mechanism which is concerned most of the time with filtering out all but what we need for survival at any given moment. It’s not half as interesting or entering as I’d hoped.

But what I did get is an honest treatise from a profound and respected wordsmith about his experience with the psychoactive mescaline and that dimension alone would have been enough for me to enjoy this little book. He spent the latter part of his life in the United States, living in Los Angeles from until his prcepcin in From Huxley’s gripping unfurling of his personal mescaline explorations, grounded in a still-well-founded conception of sensory perception, through his encylopedic knowledge of fine art, to his highly pertinent critique of dhqrma education, I followed entranced, stopping only visaul lose myself in ruminations on his latest gem.


Great essay and absolute reading recommendation! I could not help but be swept up by Huxley’s writing style, his intellectual examination of the drugs effects and the theories he applies to his observations.

For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.

The idea that the human brain can have knowledge of 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. But reading “The Doors ppercepcin Perception” was not a one dimensional affair.

Likewise, he wanted to see and feel about the world as would a mystic.

Huxley was a humanist but was also interested towards the end of his life in spiritual subjects such as parapsychology and philosophical mysticism. If you’re like me, you’ve always avoided this book due to it being the namesake of the band, The Doors.

That he ends up on the cover of Sgt. Tampoco puede sorprender la actitud corriente frente al alcohol y el tabaco. Research at the University of Pennsylvania School of Med Increasingly, I’m learning that perception is far more complicated than I ever imagined. The initial part is a first person narrative about his experiences taking peyote and his descriptions of the insight. His drug-induced musings reminded me of the The Exegesis of Philip K. This is his percepcun testimony.

Dec 25, Rate rated it it was ok Shelves: Then I theorized that most people go through their lives gradually concerning themselves more and more with only the mechanics of life What Huxley does is steer the reader from the lights and colors and the cheap thrills and focus on pertinent effects of hallucinogens; the deliverance of monotony, the fount of inspiration, the cleansed eyes that it may provide.

I can’t remember being inspired to meditate so frequently by a book for a long time, if ever. An article in the online journal, Nature, described the mechanism by which the brain “sees” what our eyes are going to see before our eyes see it.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. However, most of the essay carried the darma of underlying tone of semi-religious reverence for the effects of drugs that I hear all too much of from the kids at college.


The purposeful neglect of non verbal learning and practice of increased perception are aret discussed. View all 6 comments. Huxley thought it prevented the brain from filtering input from our senses, thereby making everything intense and amazing. Some of the points Huxley makes herein are still valid. May 15, Walter Schutjens rated it it was amazing Percepcim The work is littered throughout with so much religious and philosophical allusions, which adds to the thoughtful depth.

The martyrs go hand in hand into the arena; they are crucified alone.

For one thing, it compensates for anything that prevents us from seeing things as normal. Thus it came about that, one bright May morning, four-tenths of a gram of mescaline arfe in half a glass of water and sat down to wait for the results. I’m planning to trip on shrooms psilocybin soon so I read this to give me an idea g what to expect. Un libro valiente y revelador, de una lucidez perturbadora, no apto para menores de treinta es broma, no hay que ser siempre tan graves, tan.

The Doors of Perception by Aldous Huxley

Not on my list of great writers, but an interesting person with ideas. The second part, though, is what really hooked me. Also, imagining the guy hunching next to the bamboo legs of a chair whilst gazing at them with childlike delight is a nice little visual.

But in Judith’s skirt I could clearly percepin what, if I had been a painter of genius, I might have dbarma of my old gray flannels. This must’ve blown minds when it came out. Short book but well worth the read. It’s no surprise that he refers to Eckhart, Boehme, and eastern philosophy so often; he looks only at the “inner light” rather than consi Huxley’s writing is brilliant and a joy to read.

Refresh and try again.
