Summary
Gerald Heard (1889-1971) was a historian, science writer, educator, and philosopher. His work influenced the consciousness development movement which became popular in Western philosophy in the 1960s, and he was an early proponent of LSD as a tool for exploring consciousness. Present here are two incomplete primary drafts of an unpublished 1956 manuscript co-written by Heard and Dr. Sidney Cohen exploring the therapeutic use of LSD, Journey into Consciousness.
