In this anthology of 26 essays, Huxley discusses the nature of spiritual practice, good and evil, religion and magic, and the best texts of the various religious traditions. This is Huxley's celebration of the "ultimate reality". In his novels and essays, Huxley consistently examined the spiritual basis of both the individual and human society. He sought, through his work and his experiments with mescalin, to reach an authentic and clearly defined experience of the divine. In this book, he addresses the critical environment, political, social and spiritual issues that face us today, making these essays, written between 1941 and 1960, relevant and prophetic.
