BACK COVER #
. . .the performing philosopher does not come down the mountain with truths carved in stone. He/she comes to bat several times a day, trying to whack out a conceptual hit. In baseball, a batter who gets one hit out of three will usually lead the league. A thought-inventor is voted into the Hall of Fame or wins the coveted MVP (Most Valuable Philosopher) award on the basis of batting average over the years. In this book, for example, on-third of the ideas are kinda silly, one-third are kinda boring. But one-third are home runs. When they enter your brains they can impregnate, fuse with your other thoughts and create software for programming your life.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR(S) / EDITOR(S) #
Timothy Leary, Ph.D. has been a world-renowned psychologist, a defrocked Harvard professor, a relentless champion of brain change, a reputed drug guru, a stand-up philosopher, and a prisoner of the Nixon administration. He has been called 'the most dangerous man on the planet.'

While in prison, at times in solitary confinement, he wrote the first version of this book. ("I must confess that at that time I ws alienated, a bit daft and given to occasional fits of irritation. So color the first version of this book indigo--as in Jail House Blues.") Now revised and updated, neuropolitique presents some of Dr. Leary's best ideas, his reflections on the past and his hope for the future.
