Writing on Drugs
Narcotics, stimulants, & hallucinogens: these drugs have been integral to the cultural life of the modern world. They have shaped some of the era's most fundamental philosophies & provided much of its economic wealth. They have even exposed the neurochemistry of the human brain, which, like its cultures, has never been drug-free. Through examinations of writing on drugs via, among others, Coleridge on opium, Freud on cocaine, Michaux on mescaline, & Burroughs on all of them, Writing on Drugs explores this most profound & pervasive influence on contemporary culture.
