C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien & Owen Barfield

When people think of the Inklings, they often think of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. But there were other members of the group, including Owen Barfield.

How important is Barfield? Many often think of Tolkien’s influence on Lewis in becoming a Christian, but Barfield helped Lewis reconsider his atheism before that fateful conversation.

The Unbelievable? podcast recently had an episode that looked at the influence of Owen Barfield. A philosophy called Anthroposophy is mentioned. You can find more about it here.
