Is psychedelic therapy an ‘existential medicine’, or is it “simply foisting a comforting delusion on the sick and dying”?
Recent controlled clinical research has shown that psychedelic drugs may be a safe and effective treatment for psychiatric disorders.

This feast of Philosophy , chaired by Dr Nin Kirkham, UWA Chair of Philosophy, will tackle these big questions and more over a tasting platter and a glass of wine.
