Aldous Huxley

Aldous Huxley (July 26, 1894-Nov. 22, 1963) was born into a family of scientists in Godalming, England. At a young age, he changed the course of his studies from Science to Literature, when he developed an illness which impaired his vision. The ability to see beneath the surface remained a theme in many of his works.  In 1932 he published Brave New World, a  novel about a dystopian future based upon contemorary trends in politics and technologyHuxley was also an essayist and brought his philosophic musings into his works of fiction, as demonstrated in Brave New World and discussed in  Brave New World Revisited (1958). Among his later works were  The Art of Seeing (1942) chronicling new treatment methods which improved his vision and Doors or Perception (1954) about his experiences with hallucinogenic drugs.  He became a screenwriter, and moved to California, where he died in 1963.
