The Psychedelic Renaissance

Join researchers on a trip into the history of psychedelic drug use and explore contemporary research that could have a significant medical and societal impact. 

Psychedelic drugs are gaining popularity in the pharmaceutical industry because of their benefits for people suffering with psychiatric disorders. 


Groundbreaking work at Imperial College suggests that psilocybin in Magic Mushrooms ‘resets’ brain activity in people with depression, while MDMA may help those with PTSD. 


What are the potential benefits and drawbacks?


The Philosophy and Psychedelics Exeter Research Group aims to advance philosophical scholarship and debate on psychedelic experiences, substances, and their wider societal setting. The group’s founders will speak.


Join a trip with world experts David Nutt, Dr David Erritzoe, Professor Christine Hauskeller, Dr Peter Sjöstedt-Hughes, and BBC host Ritula Shah to look at the medical, societal, and historical implications of these recent discoveries.


Come along to make questions and comments and join the conversation – or just sit and listen!


This event is free but booking is essential.
