About this title


In 1966 Coult caused a major dispute when he introduced Psychedelic Anthropology as a self-proclaimed branch of the American Anthropological Association during the Pittsburgh meeting. Coult is credited with founding Psychedelic Anthropology and fathering the International Society for Psychedelic Anthropology. Psychedelic Anthropology is based off the researchers' experiences of their own psychic states while using different psychedelic substances, in hopes of understanding the nature of the self. Psychedelic Anthropology also deals with the history of consciousness and symbolic processes. Coult used LSD along with other substances and techniques to understand his own nature of consciousness. Dr. Coult showed how the dynamics of consciousness produce the style of awareness necessary for abstraction and cognition. Some techniques developed to achieve the psychedelic effect were types of bodily and meditative yoga, and psychotherapy. These are natural ways to gain the psychedelic effect whereas drugs chemically cause this reaction. Through his studies Dr. Allan Coult published a book Psychedelic Anthropology: The Study of Man Through the Manifestation of the Mind.
