Altered States

Discuss whether drugs can teach us something about ourselves and whether it is realistic to aim for life without drugs.


How do you start and end your day? The chances are that a mind-altering drug plays a part. From coffee to cannabis, scientists argue that the desire to alter our consciousness is as natural as the appetite for food and sex. Neuroscientist Colin Blakemore, psychologist Susan Blackmore and author Mike Jay discuss whether drugs can teach us something about ourselves, whether it is realistic to aim for life without drugs, and about the obstacles to rational debate.
