Sacred Knowledge

Psychedelics and Religious Experiences

In the early 1960s, scientists openly advocated for experimentation with psychedelics. This effort, however, quickly turned into a discredited enterprise involving recreational drug use. But what if a study of psychedelics was undertaken with trusted scientific rigor? William A. Richards does just that in Sacred Knowledge, the first well-documented, sophisticated account of the effect of psychedelics on biological processes, human consciousness, and revelatory religious experiences. Richards argues that, if used responsibly and legally, psychedelics have incredible potential to assuage human suffering and constructively contribute to the quality of life on our planet. His work is based on nearly three decades of legal research with volunteers aged twenty-four to eighty-one.

Rezension
Richards' Sacred Knowledge is not a tome, but rather a concise work rich with personal stories, observations and insights into a compelling topic, long ignored and now garnering the attention it has long deserved. Charles S. Grob, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics, UCLA School of Medicine
