Psychocivilization and Its Discontents: An Interview with José Delgado
Magnus Bärtås, Fredrik Ekman and José Delgado, Cabinet Magazine | Issue 2 Mapping Conversations Spring 2001
The list of MK-Ultra experiments is like a group photo of the extended family of behavioral technologies: hypnosis, drugs, psychological testing, sleep research, brain research, electromagnetism, lie detection. The specific operations had very imaginative names: Sleeping Beauty, Project Pandora, Woodpecker, Artichoke, Operation Midnight Climax.
Note that the authors correct the point about the congressional testimony in a footnote and refer to Peter Breggin’s article “The Return of Lobotomy and Psychosurgery”, in which he had compiled Delgado’s statements on the totalitarian use of psychosurgery. “It was this article that was presented to Congress on 24 February 1972”.
