2021 Francis Huxley and the human condition, Ron Roberts and Theodor Itten
Francis Huxley was the most intellectually adventurous person that I’ve ever met. David Napier
Francis Huxley, born in 1923, was the son of Julian and the nephew of Aldous Huxley. He was also a pioneering social anthropologist, colleague of the maverick psychiatrist Ronald David Laing during the heady and turbulent days of the 1960s, and co-founder of Survival International. When he died, in October 2016, his life and work left behind a string of unanswered questions… many of which have relevance for our discipline of psychology in these uncertain and dangerous times.
Francis Huxley, described by his friend Rupert Sheldrake as a ‘feral intellectual’, was enormously quizzical about the human condition. Like many before him, he was acutely aware of the inadequacies of any one discipline to confront it.
