Which pitfalls should we be conscious of in a society where psychedelics are becoming increasingly popular? Does psychedelics bring out certain values in people? How do other cultures view psychedelics, and what may we learn from them? What are the positive and negative consequences of acknowledging deeply spiritual or mystical experiences with psychedelics?
We will address these questions, and more, in this semester's first, biggest, and only panel discussion. While last year's discussion primarily addressed psychedelics in a therapeutical and clinical context, we now widen the horizon and focus on psychedelics' role and influence in society. We have gathered a brilliant panel, which you will have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the discussion.
