On episode 67, we welcome back philosopher Samir Chopra to discuss the recent research on the mental health benefits of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy, the history of psychedelic use, the potential harm, our personal psychedelic experiences, how empathy may be the mechanism behind their medicinal effects, ego-dissolution and its potential to distance one from their negative core beliefs, and how psychadelics, if legalized, can impact society at large.

Samir Chopra is professor of philosophy at Brooklyn College of the City University of New York. He is the author of several books, including A Legal Theory for Autonomous Artificial Agents (2011).
