Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Sometimes a writer has to revisit the classics, and here we find that "gonzo journalism"--gutsy first-person accounts wherein the author is part of the story--didn't originate with Hunter S. Thompson or Tom Wolfe. Aldous Huxley took some mescaline and wrote about it some 10 or 12 years earlier than those others. The book he came up with is part bemused essay and part mystical treatise--"suchness" is everywhere to be found while under the influence. This is a good example of essay writing, journal keeping, and the value of controversy--always--in one's work.

Mehr über den Autor

Geboren wurde Aldous Huxley am 26. Juli 1894 in Godalming in Surrey, Südengland. Seine Mutter starb, als er vierzehn Jahre alt war, sein Vater war Dichter und Biograf. Im Alter von sechzehn erblindete Aldous Huxley für fast zwei Jahre vollständig, später war er mit speziellen Brillengläsern wieder in der Lage zu lesen. Trotz seiner starken Sehschwäche studierte er Englisch in Oxford. Eine wissenschaftliche Karriere oder die Teilnahme am Ersten Weltkrieg waren ihm jedoch nicht möglich. Nicht zuletzt deshalb wandte er sich dem Schreiben zu. 1916 erschien sein erster Gedichtband, 1921 der erste Roman. In den 30er-Jahren bereiste Huxley Europa und ließ sich u. a. länger in Italien nieder, wo er sein berühmtes Buch "Schöne neue Welt" schrieb. 1937 zog es ihn in die USA. Am 22. November 1963 starb Aldous Huxley in Los Angeles.

Format:Taschenbuch
I was turned onto Doors/Heaven and Hell by myPhilosophy/English Professor. Due to my extended research intodreaming and perception, this was as insightful as they come. This book goes beyond the use of drugs; identifying with religion, art, philosophies, etc., it explains that humans tend to be one sided, and are unable to look or percieve normalcy except by looking at things...normally. It's sad that it takes drug use to be able to percieve objects beyond what they really are, yet, Huxley explains, compares and vividly depicts, not only his experience with mescalin and LCD, but how and why people are not able to visualize things in ways other than they already are,(Out-There, In-Here). Huxley writes about experiences and perception when these drugs are being used--rationally, making Huxley a writer, and a "visionary." And he does so with panache.

Format:Taschenbuch
Not only did Huxley somewhat founded the Gonzo Journalism by writing down his experiences with Mescaline, but he also "launched a lot of trips" (as the back describes it) with this publication. If You have read Island or Brave New World You can't help but recognize the analogies he points out, in terms of how individuals perceive and interact with their environment. Letting You plunge into the depths of his mind (the antipodes, as he calls it) and trying to convey his perception of things out- and inside his mind(experiencing the "suchness" of things) alone is a very difficult, not to say impossible task. However Huxley is stepping even further as he explores the longing of humans beings for mysticism and it's usage. Having read Carl G. Jung ("Die Beziehung zwischen dem Unterbewusstsein und dem Ich") last week I desperately want to revisit "The Doors of Perception" to come full circle with the psychological and the resulting external activities.
Whether you are interested in psychology, awareness alterative substances, religion or living life, this book is a must read!

Funny-Fact: The music band "The Doors" named themselves after this book!

Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
In the first half of the book, DOORS OF PERCEPTION--originally a separate volume--Huxley offers a cogent and erudite argument for the use hallucinogens (specifically, mescaline) as a means for opening up the thinking mind to new ideas and perceptions, or even as a method for jumpstarting human creativity in the common man. Not only does he offer compelling historical precedents and sound medical research, but he also reveals positive details about his own personal experimentation with the drug. As is always the case with Huxley's essays, his various hypotheses are very articulately expressed and not easily dismissed.
The second part of the book, HEAVEN AND HELL--also originally published separately--Huxley introduces the idea that spiritual insight and personal revelation can also be achieved through the use of hallucinogens. (By the time he had written this volume, Huxley had added LSD to his psychedelic repertoire.) While just as articulately written and researched as the first volume, the idea that religious insight can be gained through drugs may offend some readers (theists and atheists alike), and the premise seems odd and contrived or expedient (was he trying to gain support of the clergy?) coming from a generally non-theist thinker-philosopher such as Huxley. Nevertheless, it is still thought-provoking reading for both professionals and amateurs interested in the positive potential of mind-altering drugs.

5.0 von 5 Sternen INFORMATION first hand 30. März 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Although this book is kind of... well, slow... it is relatively short and VERY INFORMATIVE. It gave me a whole new perspective on drugs from a scientific, philosophical, spiritual, and beautiful point of view. A must read for artists and writers.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting and Provocative 30. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Huxley's experiments with mescalin induced him to write these books about his experiences with that drug. The most fascinating thing about the book was his theory of the eliminative function of the brain and the idea of the "Mind At Large". The experiments were obviously a very spiritual experience for Huxley, who encourages the use of mescalin and LSD-25 as a method of attaining transcendental experiences. Not all of his notions were 100% convincing, but Huxley conveys all of them with a clarity and an honesty that very few authors ever reach. A must for anyone interested in the topic.

5.0 von 5 Sternen rose is a rose 26. März 2013
Von Spacebo
Format:Taschenbuch
Just to note that Gertrude Stein never famously wrote "a rose is a rose is a rose" but "rose is a rose is a rose". It comes from her 1913 poem "Sacred Emily" from the collection Geography and Plays:
Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose
Loveliness extreme.
Extra gaiters,
Loveliness extreme.
Sweetest ice-cream.
Pages ages page ages page ages

Although she was trying to reinject life into the image in writing, it may well not be the same thing as intended by the author of the review.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A New Chapter of Existence in My Life 31. Januar 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
This book has shown me a way to place all my feelings and thoughts into a manifestation of intelligence that I can share with others. This book has also shown me a way to express feelings in word form, and has helped me to complete my own book, which is soon to be published.
For those who gave it low ratings: I would have to say you were too young, or too stupid (harsh but true) to get anything out of this book. Anyone who can't comprehend it can't get anything positive from it.
