HallucinationsDe (autor) Oliver Sacks
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 29 Aug 2013
HALLUCINATIONS are commonly linked to sensory deprivation, insanity, intoxication, illness, or injury. They can even lead to religious epiphanies or the feeling of leaving one's own body. Humans have always sought such life-changing visions and used hallucinogenic compounds to achieve them. In this book, with his usual elegance, curiosity, and compassion, Dr Sacks weaves together stories of his patients and of his own mind-altering experiences to decipher what hallucinations tell us about the structure of our brains, how they have influenced every culture's folklore and art, and why the potential for hallucination is present in us all.
