Xenolinguistics: Psychedelics, Language, and the Evolution of Consciousness


"In "Xenolinguistics: Psychedelics, Language, and the Evolution of Consciousness," Diana Slattery provides an intriguing and far-reaching non-fictional investigation of the linguistic and symbolic constructions of alien languages, such as the visual language Glide on which she based her fascinating novel, "The Maze Game." Combining first-hand experience, accounts from other "psychonauts" who use psychedelics to explore unknown territories in altered states of consciousness, and scientific research on the entwinement of language and consciousness, Slattery's book is highly synthetic and provocative, an exhilarating voyage into what it means to encounter the linguistic alien within and without the self."
