Hofmann’s Elixir: LSD and the New Eleusis

by Albert Hofmann (Author), Amanda Feilding (Editor)

This unique book collects, for the first time, a number of Dr Albert Hofmann’s later essays and lectures. Between them they present a comprehensive overview of Hofmann’s relationship to his controversial creation, and reveal his profound mystical outlook, informed both by his own LSD experiences and by a life lived through one of the most turbulent centuries in human history.

102 years old and still lecturing, Dr Albert Hofmann would have been a remarkable man even if he hadn’t discovered the chemical compound that changed the course of the 20th century: LSD. Hofmann’s chemical creations also include chemicals used every day in maternity and geriatric wards the world over. This unique volume collects, for the first time, a number of Hofmann’s more recent essays and lectures. They present a comprehensive overview of Hofmann’s relationship to his controversial creation and reveal his profound mystical outlook.
