Hofmann’s Potion on YouTube!

8 03 2007

This is a wonderful and well-made documentary. I whole-heartedly recommend it to everyone.
Here’s a bit of background info from The Spirit of Basel in case you don’t know who Albert Hofmann is:

“Swiss Albert Hofmann is reputed to be one of the most important chemists of our times. He is the discoverer of LSD, which he considers, up to this very day, as both a “wonder drug” and a “problem child”. In addition he did pioneering work as a researcher of other psychoactive substances as well as active agents of important medicinal plants and mushrooms. Under the spell of the mind-expanding potential of LSD the scientist turned increasingly into a philosopher of nature and a visionary critical of contemporary culture.”

Albert Hofmann recently celebrated his 101st birthday.
