500    Translation of: Albert Hofmann und sein LSD. 
504    Includes bibliographical references (pages 358-378) and 
520    "Mystic Chemist begins at the start of the twentieth 
       century, in the Swiss town of Basel which is evolving from
       a popular health spa into a major industrial city. The 
       story concludes more than a century later, after 
       celebrating Albert Hofmann's 100th birthday. It tells the 
       unique story of a soon to be famous scientist, 
       highlighting his academic journey, his research at Sandoz 
       and then, as the discoverer of LSD, his meetings and 
       interactions with illustrious writers, artists and 
       thinkers, from all over the world, whose common interest 
       is a fascination with the new wonder-drug. Luminaries like
       Aldous Huxley, Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert appear on 
       the scene and Hofmann begins a prolific correspondence 
       with them and other interested parties. Sometimes he sends
       a sample, other times he hears of their 'trips' on LSD or 
       other psychedelic substances, like mescaline or 
       psilocybin. From the beginning he takes a positive view 
       towards efforts by physicians and psychotherapists to 
       include LSD in new approaches to the treatment of 
       illnesses. He sees the 'psychedelic' potential of this 
       'wonder drug' as beneficial to all. And he expresses his 
       conviction that mystical experiences and trips to other 
       worlds of consciousness are the best preparation for the 
       very last journey he and every one of us well must 
       eventually make. At the age of 102, Albert Hofmann dies at
       home. His vitality and open mindedness stay with him until
       his last breath. The life of Albert Hofmann, the Mystic 
       Chemist, is a testimony to how one can reach a great age 
       all the while remaining physically and mentally fit and 
       spiritually aware. ..."--The publisher's statement on 
546    Translated from the German.
