Owen Barfield, philosopher, author, poet, and critic, was a founding member of the Inklings group, a private Oxford society that included leading literary figures of the time: C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Charles Williams. Writing of their many heated debates, Lewis―who was greatly affected by Barfield during their long friendship―remarked, “I think he changed me a good deal more than I him.”

Blaxland de Lange’s biography (the first to be published on Owen Barfield) was written with the help of Barfield himself, who, before his death in 1997, participated in numerous interviews with the author. Barfield also lent him many of his papers and manuscripts. The fruit of their collaboration is a book that penetrates deeply into the life and thinking of one of a towering figure of the twentieth century.

Blaxland de Lange studies the influences on Barfield by the Romantic poet Coleridge and the philosopher Rudolf Steiner, while also focusing on Barfield’s profound personal connection with C.S. Lewis. The book also features a biographical sketch in Barfield’s own words and describes his strong relationship with North America as well as his dual profession as a lawyer and writer.

About the Author:

Simon Blaxland de Lange has for many years worked as an educator for people with special needs. He is also a prolific writer and translator and an amateur musician and gardener. Blaxland de Lange helped establish Pericles Translations and Research, Pericles Training and Work (for adults with special needs), and the Pericles Theatre Company. Together with Dr Vivian Law, he cofounded the Humanities Research Group in 1997 and the British group of the Humanities Section of the School of Spiritual Science in 1998. He met Owen Barfield in 1979, and has been a student of his work for the past thirty years.

Review:

"Barfield is not content to be merely interesting. His ambition is to set us free...from the prison we have made for ourselves by our ways of knowing, our limited and false habits of thought, our `common sense.'"

Book Description Temple Lodge Publishing September 2006, 2006. Hardcover. Condition: New. Reading what people say about Owen Barfield and then reading what Owen Barfield has to say about himself, one is confronted with an enigma. C.S. Lewis called him the 'wisest and best of my unofficial teachers' but found himself at intellectual odds with Barfield on almost every front, commenting that 'he is as fascinating (and infuriating) as a woman.' A lawyer by profession, Barfield never held an academic post and founded no school of thought. He gained his literary reputation traveling the academic circuit in America where he was much celebrated as a deeply original thinker and held guest posts at a string of colleges in the Northeast. Long-committed to anthroposophy and the thought of Rudolph Steiner (he saw him as the Aristotle of modern times), Barfield's main concern was not his own literary legacy but the long-term impact of his ideas. What distinguished him most from his contemporaries (he was a long-term member of the Inklings circle) was 'his passionate concern not merely with visionary ideas but with their implementation' (Blaxland-de Lange). Barfield himself declared, 'my greatest achievement lay not in writing books but in my skill in bringing Americans together.' Written with Barfield's active cooperation, this biography uses Barfield's own words wherever possible to elucidate his life's work as a lawyer, lecturer, and man of letters. Because of this, the text can be uneven, but it's worth a little trudging to discover the man behind the thought. Seller Inventory # 96403
