Timothy Francis Leary was an American psychologist and writer known for advocating the exploration of the therapeutic potential of psychedelic drugs under controlled conditions.
As a clinical psychologist at Harvard University, Leary conducted experiments under the Harvard Psilocybin Project in 1960-62, and developed the eight-circuit model of consciousness in his book Exo-Psychology. He gave lectures, occasionally billing himself as a "performing philosopher".
During the 1960s and 1970s, he was arrested often enough to see the inside of 36 different prisons worldwide. President Richard Nixon once described Leary as "the most dangerous man in America".
