Aldous Huxley on Mystics, Totalitarians and Science

For Paul’s latest essay on Aldous Huxley see his website dpcrook.wordpress. com.   Click on  Aldous Huxley.

Aldous was an eminent novelist and commentator writing in the 1920s to 1960s on science, evolution, religion, art, literature, mysticism and the human condition generally. Much of what he wrote is relevant today. One question he asked was what do we put in the place of religion in a secular world? Are we facing a dangerous loss of ethical values in a world governed by technology, hedonism and self- centredness?
