ARTIFICIAL PARADISES reveals the diverse roles mind-altering drugs have played throughout history . It brings together a multiplicity of voices which explore the presence - both secret and public - of drugs in the overlapping dialogues of scienceand religion, pleasure and madness, individualism and social control. From Apulieus's GOLDEN ASS to Hunter S.Thompson's frenzied FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS, via Sartre's nightmarish experiences with mescaline and Walter Benjamin's ecstatic wanderings on hashish, ARTIFICIAL PARADISES is packed full of the weird, the wonderful and the shocking.
