Aldous Huxley

Aldous Leonard Huxley was an English writer and one of the most prominent members of the famous Huxley family. He spent the latter part of his life in the United States, living in Los Angeles from 1937 until his death in 1963. Best known for his novels and wide-ranging output of essays, he also published short stories, poetry, travel writing, and film stories and scripts. Through his novels and essays, Huxley functioned as an examiner and sometimes critic of social mores, norms, and ideals. Huxley was a humanist but was also interested towards the end of his life in spiritual subjects such as parapsychology and philosophical mysticism. By the end of his life, Huxley was widely acknowledged as one of the pre-eminent intellectuals of his time.

Quotes

Orlando Contrerashas quoted3 months ago

Оптимальный состав народонаселения, - говорил далее Мустафа, - смоделирован нами с айсберга, у которого восемь девятых массы под водой, одна девятая над водой
tontchahas quoted2 years ago
He was a mine of irrelevant information and unasked-for good advice.
