Description

For years, Michael Pollan's books have changed minds and influenced contemporary ideas about agriculture, nature, nutrition and ethics.

He has has sparked debates on genetically modified organisms, and even on the definition of 'food' … and he's done it with charm, imagination and gusto, bringing serious scientific heft and optimism to all his work.

Pollan’s latest investigation is more explicitly concerned than ever with changing minds. This time, he’s turned his attention to psychedelic drugs; their history and their potential. Pollan wants us to look beyond the myriad misconceptions and clichés to understand the groundbreaking new science around hallucinogens. In How To Change Your Mind, he discovers how psychedelic drugs can help us learn more about human consciousness – as well as the benefits they may offer in the treatment of many illnesses.

Join this icon of science journalism as he discusses his most personal work yet.
