A classic account of the psychedelic experience

The Joyous Cosmology is Alan Watts's exploration of the insight that the consciousness-changing drugs LSD, mescaline, and psilocybin can facilitate "when accompanied with sustained philosophical reflection by a person who is in search, not of kicks, but of understanding." More than an artifact, it is both a riveting memoir of Watts's personal experiments and a profound meditation on our perennial questions about the nature of existence and the existence of the sacred.

Includes Watts's article "Psychedelics and Religious Experience"

Industry Reviews

"Alan Watts describes with startling clarity and poetic beauty his drug-induced experiences."
-- Contemporary Psychology

"The Joyous Cosmology is a carrier wave of information and insight, which has lost none of its subtlety, suppleness, or zest."
-- from the new introduction by Daniel Pinchbeck, author of Breaking Open the Head

"A stirring introduction to one of mankind's newest self-examinations."
-- Newsweek
