Editorial Reviews

Review

"Beautifully rendered, exhasutively documented.... Highly Recommended." -- J. G. Schnellman ― Choice Published On: 2013-08-01

"A deeply reflective meditation on the perennial struggle of humanity to preserve a mystical view of life during a time of materialist scientific discourses." -- Adam Montgomery ―
Gesnerus

"Neuropsychedelia is an elegant exemplar of both science studies and anthropology of the contemporary." -- Meg Stalcup ―
Somatosphere Published On: 2015-04-08

From the Inside Flap

"Langlitz's fieldwork in cutting-edge neuroscience laboratories is a much-needed scholarly work on the neglected area of psychedelic drugs and what these drugs can tell us about ourselves. Here, Langlitz grapples with the difficult issues at stake when studying these areas of neuroscience and psychopharmacology."—David Healy, author of Pharmageddon

"This is a first-class anthropological achievement. Langlitz' careful, long-term fieldwork generated many powerful and unexpected insights into the past and present of hallucinogen research.
Neuropsychedelia will surely become the standard reference for this burgeoning field of social studies."—Tobias Rees, Assistant Professor of Anthropology at McGill University

Nicolas Langlitz is an anthropologist who writes about how research in the mind and life sciences changes our self-conceptions as human beings. His questions are largely philosophical but he pursues them in the field. However, his field sites often turn out to be other people's laboratories where he observes science in action, but he has also worked at actual field sites such as primatological research stations in African rainforests. He published books about the discovery of chimpanzee cultures, the revival of psychedelic research, and the highly controversial clinical practice of a French psychoanalyst famous for his anti-biologistic reinterpretation of Freud.
