This is Your Mind on Plants - Michael Pollan

Sale price $23.80 Regular price $28.00

Michael Pollan dives deep into three plant drugs - opium, caffeine, and mescaline - and throws the fundamental strangeness, and arbitrariness, of our thinking about them into sharp relief. Exploring and participating in the cultures that have grown up around these drugs while consuming them, Pollan reckons with the powerful human attractive to psychoactive plants. Why do we go to such great lengths to seek these shifts in in consciousness, and then why do we fence that universal desire with laws an customs and fraught feelings?
