Description

Between 1954 and 1962 (when the study was halted by the U.S. government seizing his supply of LSD) psychiatrist Oscar Janiger studied the reactions of some 930 men and women of differing backgrounds to ingestion of LSD-25 in a safe environment. Medical anthropologist de Rios reports on the results of that study and a sub- study devoted to artists, convinced that it contains evidence of LSD’s potential to heighten creative response, to instigate or deepen spiritual connection and awareness, and to aid in therapeutic processes. She lets the study’s participants speak for themselves for the most part, “in the tradition of Western psychosocial studies.” Finally she relates Janiger’s study to her own work exploring the use of psychedelics for religious purposes in various parts of the world.
