The Doors of Perception : And Heaven and Hell WITH Heaven and Hell Paperback

5 out of 5 (1 rating)


WITH A FORWARD BY J. G. BALLARD In 1953, in the presence of an investigator, Aldous Huxley took four-tenths of a gramme of mescalin, sat down and waited to see what would happen.

When he opened his eyes everything, from the flowers in a vase to the creases in his trousers, was transformed.

Huxley described his experience with breathtaking immediacy in The Doors of Perception.

In its sequel Heaven and Hell, he goes on to explore the history and nature of mysticism.

Still bristling with a sense of excitement and discovery, these illuminating and influential writings remain the most fascinating account of the visionary experience ever written.

Reads like no other book - mesmerising! The title incidently, is where the band 'The Doors' took their name from.
