Synopsis: Neuropsychedelia examines the revival of psychedelic science since the "Decade of the Brain." After the breakdown of this previously prospering area of psychopharmacology, and in the wake of clashes between counterculture and establishment in the late 1960s, a new generation of hallucinogen researchers used the hype around the neurosciences in the 1990s to bring psychedelics back into the mainstream of science and society. This book is based on anthropological fieldwork and philosophical reflections on life and work in two laboratories that have played key roles in this development: a human lab in Switzerland and an animal lab in California. It sheds light on the central transnational axis of the resurgence connecting American psychedelic culture with the home country of LSD. In the borderland of science and religion, Neuropsychedelia explores the tensions between the use of hallucinogens to model psychoses and to evoke spiritual experiences in laboratory settings. Its protagonists, including the anthropologist himself, struggle to find a place for the mystical under conditions of late-modern materialism.

From the Inside Flap: "Langlitz's fieldwork in cutting-edge neuroscience laboratories is a much-needed scholarly work on the neglected area of psychedelic drugs and what these drugs can tell us about ourselves. Here, Langlitz grapples with the difficult issues at stake when studying these areas of neuroscience and psychopharmacology."—David Healy, author of Pharmageddon

"This is a first-class anthropological achievement. Langlitz' careful, long-term fieldwork generated many powerful and unexpected insights into the past and present of hallucinogen research. Neuropsychedelia will surely become the standard reference for this burgeoning field of social studies."—Tobias Rees, Assistant Professor of Anthropology at McGill University
