9781572060531: The Unconscious

Recorded Live - One Cassette

This is first in a series of 16 lectures Aldous Huxley gave in 1959, as the first visiting professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara. The Complete Set of Sixteen Lectures can be purchased as The Human Situation.

Huxley considers the unconscious both negative and positive, creative and destructive, linking it to what William James calls "cosmic consciousness." He speaks of the unconscious as not enclosed, but touching a psychic medium out of which the individual mind is crystallized and through this psychic medium contacts other minds.

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
