NUS PRC professor: Small doses of hallucinogenic drugs can make students more ‘creative’
Posted by temasektimes on June 15, 2012
Small doses of hallucinogenic drugs can make students more ‘creative’, wrote Shi Yuzhi, an Associate Professor of Chinese language and linguistics in the Department of Chinese Studies at National University of Singapore on his personal blog.
Prof Shi, who graduated with a PhD from Stanford University in 1999, quoted the example of the late former CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs who had famously described taking LSD as a “positive life-changing experience”.
The post caused a stir among netizens with many disagreeing with him.
In response to queries from the media, NUS said it does not endorse the views espoused by Prof Shi and it will be ‘investigating’ the matter.
