Cleansing the Doors of Perception, by renowned philosopher and scholar of religion Huston Smith, explores the use of psychedelic/entheogenic drugs as a means to achieve mystical union with the divine. In a unique blend of direct experience and academic depth, Smith describes the historic and turbulent academic experiments of the sixties, including his own initiation into the world of psychedelic drugs in the company of Timothy Leary -- a meeting arranged by Aldous Huxley -- and the profound effect it had on his understanding of reality. Smith mines his own experiences, his relationships to pioneers in this field, and his vast knowledge of history, theology, philosophy, psychology, and anthropology in wrestling with the question -- Do drugs have religious import?
