Interview - Dr. Ralph Abraham speaks of The Hip Santa Cruz Project 

Listen Now to Ralph Abraham

Why would a young mathematics professor with a post at prestigious Princeton University leave it to live in Santa Cruz, CA in the late 1960’s?  Why would the experiences of that time in his life be important enough for him to collect and to share with future generations now, half a century up the timeline? We explore these questions and more with the father of Chaos Theory, Dr. Ralph Abraham, and the Hip Santa Cruz Project, just as the first book of these efforts is being released this week.

Now up is the Hip Santa Cruz book event August 6, 2016


Dr. Ralph Abraham speaking to us about the Hip Santa Cruz Project

He received his Doctorate in Botanical Sciences in 1984 from the University of British Columbia, where he wrote a dissertation entitled Monoamine oxidase inhibitors in Amazonian hallucinogenic plants: ethnobotanical, phytochemical, and pharmacological investigations.  

His research has included the pharmacologybotany, and chemistry of ayahuasca and oo-koo-hé, the subjects of his master’s thesis. He has also conducted extensive fieldwork in the PeruvianColombian, and Brazilian Amazon.

He has recently finished a memoir entitled “The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss,” about his and his brother Terence’s journeys together.
