There are plenty of general psychedelics-and-religion
bibliographies already; it's nearly common knowledge by now. There are already about ten books about
entheogens in Western religions. I will
merely provide links to such comprehensive sites.
It is great that people are making a strong connection now
between entheogens and the origin of essentially all religions, but this new
common knowledge lacks a philosophy and theory of metaphysics and time.
I am going to be very selective and strive for books that
especially support the convergence of the following areas.
o Entheogens in
the origin of religions, particularly the mystery religions.
experiencing rationally and clearly explained.
Judeo-Christianity as mystery religion.
o Metaphysics of
time, theory of frozen time, including hidden-variables determinism and
o Personal control
I will not provide much coverage of these areas: shamanism,
most Eastern religion, 20th-century psychedelics history.
- Zen, Drugs, and Mysticism. A dubious
position, but a standard point of reference.
-- articles about self and personal agency.
The Entheogen Theory of Religion - Amazon Book Lists
theory of the origin of religions
active eucharist that reveals the kingdom of God
(Catholic authors II)
Supper (Prot., E. Orth, Ecum.)
- amanita books and links, also general entheogens in western religion
Book lists at Dan Russell's Drug War & herbal site --
