CLEANSING THE DOORS OF PERCEPTION. The Religious Significance of Entheogenic Plants and Chemicals (Used)
by Smith, Huston
Binding: Hardcover with dust jacket
Book ID: 4201, 4201
173pp, fine cond. Smith is one of the world’s most respected authorities on religion, and a life-long Methodist. His writings are championed by the Traditionalists and by mainstream Christians. He lives a few miles from me in the city of Berkeley. He was a seminary student when he took part in an experiment that was partly based on W. T. Stace’s seven states of religious experience in which Smith took psilocybin on Good Friday in 1962. Since then he has written extensively on the subject of entheogens (‘God enablers”), but almost exclusively for academic publications. Here Smith’s editors have taken 10 of his papers and brought them together, with Smith revising many of them, and thankfully never taking the scholarly rigor out of them. If you accept Smith’s ultimate conclusions, that entheogens are at the very heart of the religious knowledge of all tribal people, and by extension into Greece, then his subject is paramount, though we have only just begun to address it.
