Recorded Live - One Cassette

Huxley discusses does art hold up a mirror to nature or does nature hold up a mirror to art? Art can have a profound effect on society, can enlarge and deepen our knowledge, or can be used as propaganda to control a population.

Note: The inherent difficulities of live recordings and the age of some of the recordings can cause variations in the sound quality.

ALDOUS HUXLEY (1894-1963) British-born novelist, poet, essayist, philosopher and mystic, Huxley was fascinated by the wilder margins of psychology, medicine, the occult, drugs and religion. He was a man of exceptional vision and foresight, and his breadth of learning was astounding. He wrote over 50 books, including such classics as "The Doors of Perception", "Island", and "Brave New World".

"Huxley was a scientist and artist in one, standing for all we most need in a fragmented world where each of us carries a distorting splinter out of some great, shattered, universal mirror. He made it his mission to restore these fragments" - Yehudi Menuhin
