Terence McKenna (1946-2000) has been studying the ontological foundations of Shamanism and the Ethnopharmacology of spiritual transformation for the past quarter century. An innovative theoretician and spellbinding orator, McKenna has emerged as a powerful voice for the psychedelic movement and the emergent societal tendency he calls "The Archaic Revival." Poetically dispensing enlightened social criticism and new theories of the fractal dynamics of time, McKenna de-obfuscates many aspects of the visionary lexicon, and then some.
His books include: The Archaic Revival: Speculations on Psychedelic Mushrooms, the Amazon, Virtual Reality, UFOs, Evolution, Shamanism, the Rebirth of the Goddess, and the End of History (1992), Food of the Gods: The Search for the Original Tree of Knowledge - A Radical History of Plants, Drugs, and Human Evolution (1993), and The Invisible Landscape: Mind, Hallucinogens, and the I Ching (1994).
