Return Trip: The Re-Enchantment of Psychedelics
The return of clinical psychedelic research offers the opportunity the re-assess the narratives that surround and shape psychoactive substances. Today those narratives increasingly try to reduce drug- induced states of consciousness to brain activity, with the paradox that any attempt at a totalizing neurological account of conscious- ness must account for the full range of psychedelic phenomena. A situated understanding of this process suggests that reductive explanations are unavoidably woven into holistic 'meshworks' of social, psychological, spiritual, and possibly cosmic import.
