Les Portes de la perception

By Aldous Huxley

Par l'ingestion de mescaline, Aldous Huxley rejoint à son journey le paradis artificiel de Nerval et Baudelaire. Mais l'originalité de cette expérience tient à l. a. volonté scientifique qui l'anime: en 1954, c'est sous contrôle médical que le romancier absorbe l. a. drogue dans le yet d'ouvrir, selon l'expression de William Blake, " les portes de l. a. conception " et de " connaître, par l'intérieur, ce dont parlaient le visionnaire, le médium, et même le mystique, le miracle [...] de l'existence dans sa nudité, l. a. réalité manifestée ". Outre ce récit initiatique, éponyme de l'ouvrage, sont rassemblés ici des essais qui témoignent d'une recherche spirituelle constante depuis l. a. Philosophie éternelle (1945). A travers une tradition syncrétique qui traite avec une même ferveur l. a. pensée bouddhiste zen et le dogme catholique, se dessine le souci de mettre chacun sur l. a. voie de l'illumination par l. a. contemplation et le recueillement. Cette orientation donne aux réflexions de Huxley, sur le temps, l'art, le progrès et surtout l. a. violence et los angeles paix une size intemporelle.
