Timothy Francis Leary (October 22, 1920 – May 31, 1996) was an American psychologist and writer known for his strong advocacy of psychedelic drugs. Opinions of Leary are polarized, ranging from bold oracle to publicity hound. He was “a hero of American consciousness,” according to Allen Ginsberg, and Tom Robbins called him a “brave neuronaut.” But to Louis Menand, it was a put-on: “The only things Leary was serious about were pleasure and renown.” Leary was not a seeker of truth, according to Menand: “He liked women, he liked being the center of attention, and he liked to get high.”
