Las puertas de la percepción - Cielo e infierno / The Doors of Perception & Heaven and Hell By Aldous Huxley Cover Image
Special Order


Huxley es uno de los primeros escritores del siglo XX que trató de descubrir los «cambios objetivos» provocados por la ingestión de drogas alucinógenas

En Las puertas de la percepción (1954), el autor narra la fantástica experiencia visionaria que le produce la toma de mescalina, el principio activo del peyotl. Dos años más tarde publica Cielo e infierno, en el que continúa explorando la unidad entre la mente y el cosmos.
Estos ensayos, tan singulares como precursores, son en sí mismos experiencias de trascendencia del yo.

«Si las puertas de la percepción quedaran depuradas, todas las cosas aparecerían ante el hombre tal como son: infinitas».- William Blake


Among the most profound and influential explorations of mind-expanding psychadelic drugs ever written, here are two complete classic books—The Doors of Perception and Heaven and Hell—in which Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World, reveals the mind's remote frontiers and the unmapped areas of human consciousness. This new edition also features an additional essay, "Drugs That Shape Men's Minds," which is now included for the first time.

"A genuine spiritual quest. ... Extraordinary." — New York Times
