Taboos can be both impediments to knowledge and storehouses of knowledge.
This talk explores the taboos in place in the scientific community studying ayahuasca, and compares their usefulness to those in indigenous ayahuasca traditions.
Why is very little that is considered important in the jungle taken seriously by academic and clinical researchers?
Is there any scientific reason to dismiss indigenous perspectives on ayahuasca?
What can we learn from history about bias in science?
