summary The Harvard Psychedelic Club

While the content of The Harvard Psychedelic Club was certainly intriguing Lattin made poor use of his resource material and produced a mess of a book A generous portion of text is invented dialogue and Lattin seems undecided about whether he is writing a history of 60 s counertculture or a chatty biography of Timothy Learly and his fellow participants One feels as if Lattin originally planned to write a much longer book produced 250 pages of notes and bibliography then decided he was approaching deadline and promptly wrote a concluding chapter and sent the manuscript in unedited The result is a poorly plotted book that jumps forward and backward in time as it attempts to follow the interconnected lives of several of the big names of the 1960 s drug and social countertculture Timothy Leary Andrew Weil Ram Das and Huston SmithWhat does emerge is Lattin s consuming interest in Leary who was himself obsessed initially with the effects of psychedelics on the mind and society and later on with the Cult of Leary Leary dominates the material despite Lattin s personal interviews with Ram Das and Andrew Weil Huston Smith the most interesting figure in the book to my mind receives scant attention Lattin attributes much of the development of sixties counterculture to Leary conveniently leaving out such large factors as the effects of popular music outside the San FranciscoHeight Ashbury scene and the effects of the Civil Rights movement What got the undivided attention of this reader was the administration of psychedelics to faculty and graduate students being incorporated into the curriculum of the Harvard Department of Psychology Ironically Leary LSD s biggest cheerleader hastened the banning of LSD not yet illegal at the time of the Harvard experiments by his escalating anticsHis conclusion as far as I can tell is the uestion What happens after the ecstacy My answer would be to take it up with Huston Smith whose psychedelic experiences allowed him to expand his spiritual life and provided some insight into the mysticism he was studyingDespite its many shortcomings the book was interesting especially the revelation that at the same time Leary Co was tripping at Harvard the CIA was experimenting on US troops I would recommend this book to anyone with the patience to read what might have made a decent Rolling Stone article but turned out to be a book length run on sentence
