Aldous Huxley was interviewed by Dennis Preston from Lansdowne Recording Studios.


"The interview took place in the London summer-two long afternoons, punctuated by tea and sherry, in Aldous's sitting-room with the view of the trees in Ennismore Gardens. The range of subjects was very wide. Aldous, as the case might be, responded to his interviewer,side-stepped or expanded. The great point of it all is that it has left us with such a characteristic record not only of Aldous's thought but of Aldous's way of expressing it; more spontaneous, more informal than his writing, more informal still than his lectures and broadcasts-there was no time limit, no audience ... This record comes as near as anything to the way Aldous talked to his friends. This was his conversation."

He had a cause and he served it. The cause was to awaken his readers, scientists and laymen alike, to the connections, hitherto inadequately investigated and described between regions artificially divided: physical and mental, sensuous and spiritual, inner and outer..."
