Abstract:

Ethnobotany studies the relationship between plants and humans. In this book
the aspects of Aztec ethnobotany dealing with plants modifying “normal” states
of mind are addressed. Up to now the attention to plants that cured mental
diseases among the Aztecs is limited. In other words, whereas there have been
many studies regarding Mexican hallucinogens, they did mostly not specifically
focus on their use and role in Aztec culture to cure mental diseases. Thus, in
this book the primary target will be the relationship in Aztec society between
plants on one side, and the diseased and normal mind on the other. Since the
Nahuatl language of the Aztecs is of major importance for the understanding of
such a relationship, a careful analysis of Nahuatl lexicon is as much as
possible incorporated, together with a close inspection of the different
sources available on the topic of the ideology of mental health and its
magical, religious and empirical treatment.
