The primary purpose of “Psychedelic Modernism: Literature, Audio, and Films” is to trace the development of ideas and perspectives from the writing and private ambitions of 20th-century modernist writers, including Aldous Huxley. The purpose of the book is to offer a rough chronology during which ideas were first given a literary imagination, then transposed onto discussions of science and psychology, and then theoretically democratized to bring fruit to a relatively de-centered process where images, text, and interviews could re-conceptualize the modern Being from an admixture of modernist, historical, and pop roots that could express a greater moment in the human action. The work includes discussions from scientists such as Swiss chemist Albert Hoffman, rock stars such as Jerry Garcia, and unconfirmed mystics such as Carlos Castaneda. The primary focus of this work isn’t literature per se, but the literary imagination as it may correspond to greater, wider, and more impactive goals than the writing of 20th-century fiction. While there is some outreach that favors de-centered models such as the Beat Generation, the author’s primary purpose is to assemble an anthology covering the study and quests for knowledge from as many sides as could power the relative 1960s countercultural movement.

Why do we act the way we do? Why do we assume that our community's way of being and behaving is the right, good and common sense way? Why can't we come to understand those who act, feel and are different? Why don't we feel understood and accepted in the majority social group? These are some of the questions raised and answered in this book. A book that continues the same project as ‘Forms of Life and Subjectivity: Rethinking Sartre’s Philosophy’ (2021). With this ontology, I am conscious of making a turn or joining this contemporary turn from the centrality of language to action as an expression of our being. I construct this ontology from the phenomenological tradition but with the innovation of taking the “form of life” as the central ontological unit. We are our form of life, but as a transcendental-immanent reality, this is not directly equivalent to culture or society, but to the realisation in the world of an image of the human being shared by a given community. This overcomes the Sartrean dualities of individual and society, consciousness and body, facticity and freedom. The subject is a subject because he identifies with this image of the human being, which is equivalent to the intersubjective consciousness of how one should act and be in the world. This gives rise to multiple forms of life, which I also catalogue and study in their network of relations. Thus, in this attempt to show how the form of life is the fundamental unit that explains individual as well as social and international relations, I devote the second part of the book to a detailed study of the use of language as propaganda to reaffirm and reinforce the will to be, which is the power to impose onto oneself and then onto others the image of the human being we identify with.
