Format: Paperback
Dr. Charles T. Tart (born 1937) is an American psychologist and parapsychologist, and one of the founders of the field of transpersonal psychology (he formerly taught at UC Davis). He is currently a Core Faculty Member at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology and a Senior Research Fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences. He has also written The End of Materialism: How Evidence of the Paranormal Is Bringing Science and Spirit Together, Body Mind Spirit: Exploring the Parapsychology of Spirituality, Transpersonal Psychologies, etc.

He wrote in the Introduction to the First Edition (1968) of this book, "An altered state of consciousness for a given individual is one in which he clearly feels a QUALITATIVE shift in his pattern of mental functioning... This book is concerned with those states of consciousness in which the individual feels one or more qualitative ... shifts in mental functioning, so that he believes himself to be in an ASC."

This book is so extraordinary it took me two years to read it. I would read one or two of the papers, then walk around spaced out for a few months, then another one or two chapters.... For the adventurers in human consciousness this book is a treasure house. Written on both a high intellectual and also a highly conscious level, it offers what is possibly the best collection of glimpses into the varieties of human consciousness. I was so taken by this book that I made it a point to go meet the author where he was teaching at UC Davis. One of the biggest names in the pioneering of human consciousness.

A classic set of readings involving different states of altered consciousness. I read the university's copy front to back many times as a student and I was glad when I saw it on amazon.
