He notes that the existentialism of the early 20th century is due mainly to poor thinking habits & erroneous self-pity. He describes his idea of peak experiences?times when one feels more vitally alive & interested in the world?and the role of sex and danger as stimuli of some such experiences. An appendix recounts his experience of taking mescalin to investigate modes of consciousness & perception.
