The telescope of the mind: Can psychedelics provide insights into consciousness?

Psychedelics have been widely discussed in popular discourse and academia as mind-revealing agents and useful probes for exploring the nature of consciousness among users, patients, and scientists. However, the extent of their contributions remains unclear. Drawing on contemporary interdisciplinary research in neuroscience, anthropology, and psychology, this presentation aims to explore the role of psychedelics in the (de)construction of human experience, the sense of self, and the contextually embedded character of consciousness. Additionally, this talk will reflect on pressing ethical issues surrounding the potential for mind-revealing insights and false memories to arise during psychedelic therapy, as well as the importance of skilful know-how and psychedelic apprenticeship in addressing them.
