Details: Product Description Loaded with new material--a new introduction, additional interviews, as well as new photos and artwork--the second edition of Mavericks of the Mind also includes the transcripts from the events that brought together interviewees from the book to debate philosophical topics in roundtable discussions. This stimulating collection features in-depth conversations with accomplished thinkers, such as Terence McKenna, Laura Huxley, Allen Ginsberg, Timothy Leary, John Lilly, Carolyn Mary Kleefeld, Rupert Sheldrake, Riane Eisler, and Robert Anton Wilson. The interviews explore such fascinating topics as the frontiers of consciousness exploration, how psychedelics effect creativity, the relationship between science and spirituality, lucid dreaming, quantum physics, morphic field theory, interspecies communication, chaos theory, and time travel. Review When it was first published, Mavericks of the Mind was more than a breath of fresh air -- it was a hurricane of ideas and visions perfectly tuned to the time. This 21st century expansion pack will ensure that these maverick spirits--many of whom have now passed on-- will continue to channel the mindscape beyond the bend. --Erik Davis --MAPS Bulletin This is a fine collection of original thinkers, an important national resource. Everyone who wants to stay current with information from the outer perimeters of consciousness exploration should read it. --Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead --Magical Blend Magazine Depending on how one chooses to view it, this aptly named book is either a potpourri of strange and wonderful ideas or a collection of far-fetched suppositions. ...there will certainly be readers interested in this volume s unique subject matter. --Library Journal About the Author David Jay Brown is the coauthor of three other bestselling volumes of interviews with leading-edge thinkers, Voices from the Edge, Conversations on the Edge of the Apocalypse, and Mavericks of Medicine.
