Timothy Leary, PhD

Dr. Timothy Leary, PhD (1920-1996)  was a psychologist, philosopher, explorer, teacher, optimist, author and revolutionary avatar of the mind. Rightly called the Galileo of Consciousness, he went public with his observations of the mind made with psychedelic mindscopes and helped initiate a renaissance which is still only beginning to elaborate itself.

In his 27 books and monographs, 250 articles, and more than 100 printed interviews published since the early 1950s, Leary has helped define the Humanistic Revolution which has had a huge impact on world culture. During this time, his books and papers as a psychologist helped launch the emerging “Humanistic Psychology” movement with an emphasis on interpersonal relationships, multilevel personality assessments, group therapy, body/mind interaction, and a libertarian redefinition of the doctor-patient relationship.

During the 1960s, Timothy Leary’s published research and social activism helped trigger the psychopharmacological and counterculture revolution known as the Psychedelic Movement. During the 1970s (in which he spent nearly eight years in prison and exile as a political dissident) Leary’s work helped expose the mass mind control police totalitarianism of the Nixon/Reagan/Bush regimes. During the 1970s Leary also wrote about space colonization, intelligence increase, and longevity research. During the 1980s Leary wrote published autobiography, Flashbacks (1987), as well as over 40 essays in various magazines and numerous interviews were published.
