Scholars taking drugs (in the sense of opium, LSD etc.).

Forwarded on behalf of Oliver Hochadel oliver.hochadel@univie.ac.at Please reply direct to Oliver. Dear colleagues I am writing a journalistic piece on scientists (or scholars more general) taking drugs (in the sense of opium, LSD etc.). There are probably two categories: 1. Scholars taking drugs as part of their research on them (Sigmund Freud, Albert Hoffman, Sertürner, Humphry Davy, ethnobotanists etc.) and 2. Scholars taking drugs for other reasons (pain relief, being able to work more etc.) such as John Tyndall, Thomas Huxley, Jean-Paul Sartre etc.). I am interested in both. I would be grateful for any further suggestions or hints. This is for the Austrian science magazine heureka!

It intends to do so, by focusing on the study of science education, and by promoting interdisciplinary communication between two subjects which rarely interact (the history of science and the history of education). Cross-National comparison was a major driving force in the nineteenth-century organization of education. Educationists, scientists and students circulated across national boundaries and compared different educat
