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.
The Perennial Philosophy (2009)
An inspired gathering of religious writings that reveals the “divine reality” common to all faiths, collected by Aldous Huxley “The Perennial Philosophy,” Aldous Huxley writes, “may be found among the traditional lore of peoples in every region of the world, and in its fully developed forms it has a place in every one of the higher religions.” With great wit and stunning intellect—drawing on a diverse array of faiths, including Zen Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, Christian mysticism, and Islam…
In his final novel, which he considered his most important, Aldous Huxley transports us to the remote Pacific island of Pala, where an ideal society has flourished for 120 years. Inevitably, this island of bliss attracts the envy and enmity of the surrounding world. A conspiracy is underway to take over Pala, and events are set in motion when an agent of the conspirators, a newspaperman named Faranby, is shipwrecked there.
Brave New World author Aldous Huxley on enlightenment and the “ultimate reality”.In this anthology of twenty-six essays and other writings, Huxley discusses the nature of God, enlightenment, being, good and evil, religion, eternity, and the divine. Huxley consistently examined the spiritual basis of both the individual and human society, always seeking to reach an authentic and clearly defined experience of the divine.
Brave New World (2006)
Now more than ever: Aldous Huxley’s enduring masterwork must be read and understood by anyone concerned with preserving the human spirit “A masterpiece.
The astonishing novel , originally published in 1932, presents Aldous Huxley’s vision of the future – of a world utterly transformed. Through the most efficient scientific and psychological engineering, people are genetically designed to be passive and therefore consistently useful to the ruling class. This powerful work of speculative fiction sheds a blazing critical light on the present and is considered to be Huxley’s most enduring masterpiece.
The Devils of Loudun (P.S.) (2009)
Aldous Huxley’s acclaimed and gripping account of one of the strangest occurrences in history In 1643 an entire convent in the small French village of Loudun was apparently possessed by the devil. After a sensational and celebrated trial, the convent’s charismatic priest Urban Grandier—accused of spiritually and sexually seducing the nuns in his charge—was convicted of being in league with Satan. Then he was burned at the stake for witchcraft.
After Many a Summer Dies the Swan (1993)
A Hollywood millionaire with a terror of death, whose personal physician happens to be working on a theory of longevity-these are the elements of Aldous Huxley’s caustic and entertaining satire on man’s desire to live indefinitely. With his customary wit and intellectual sophistication, Huxley pursues his characters in their quest for the eternal, finishing on a note of horror. “This is Mr.
Written at the height of his powers immediately after Brave New World, Aldous Huxley’s highly acclaimed Eyeless in Gaza is his most personal novel. Huxley’s bold, nontraditional narrative tells the loosely autobiographical story of Anthony Beavis, a cynical libertine Oxford graduate who comes of age in the vacuum left by World War I.
Point Counter Point (British Literature) (1996)
One of Huxley’s masterpieces one of the Modern Library’s “100 Best Works of the Century.”
Un mundo feliz es un clásico de la literatura de este siglo. Con ironía mordiente, el genial autor inglés plasma una sombría metáfora sobre el futuro, muchas de cuyas previsiones se han materializado, acelerada e inquietantemente, en los últimos años. La novela describe un mundo en el que finalmente se han cumplido los peores vaticinios: triunfan los dioses del consumo y la comodidad, y el orbe se organiza en diez zonas en apariencia seguras y estables.
Moksha: Aldous Huxley’s Classic Writings on Psychedelics and the Visionary Experience (1999)
Selected writings from the author of Brave New World and The Doors of Perception on the role of psychedelics in society. • Includes letters and lectures by Huxley never published elsewhere. In May 1953 Aldous Huxley took four-tenths of a gram of mescaline. The mystical and transcendent experience that followed set him off on an exploration that was to produce a revolutionary body of work about the inner reaches of the human mind.
Antic Hay (1997)
London life just after World War I, devoid of values and moving headlong into chaos at breakneck speed – Aldous Huxley’s Antic Hay, like Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises, portrays a world of lost souls madly pursuing both pleasure and meaning. Fake artists, third-rate poets, pompous critics, pseudo-scientists, con-men, bewildered romantics, cock-eyed futurists – all inhabit this world spinning out of control, as wildly comic as it is disturbingly accurate.
