Book Description

1 May 2011
'Owen Barfield on C.S. Lewis' is a collection of essays and lectures about the author, theologian, and literary scholar, C. S. Lewis. Barfield and Lewis were close friends for 44 years, from their Oxford days after WWI to Lewis's death in 1963. Barfield's reflections on their relationship ended only with his own passing, in his hundredth year. Barfield was instrumental in converting Lewis to theism. However, the two disagreed on many points, and it is that creative dialectic which defines and irradiates their friendship: "In an argument we always, both of us, were arguing for the truth, not for victory" (Owen Barfield). C.S. Lewis on Owen Barfield: "The wisest and best of my unofficial teachers." "Barfield towers above us all." To Walter Field: "You notice when Owen and I are talking metaphysics which you don't follow: you don't notice the times when you and Owen are talking economics which I can't follow. Owen is the only one who is never out of his depth."

3.0 out of 5 stars As much about Barfield as about Lewis 25 Sep 2005
By Thomas A. Hanson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Owen Barfield is probably my favorite unknown author. Everyone who has an interest in philosophy or religion ought to read his masterpiece,Saving the Appearances. This book on Lewis doesn't belong in that category, though I recommend it nonetheless because of Barfield's graceful way with words and the occasional interesting anecdote concerning Lewis. You will learn something of Barfield's own philosophy, but less than a reading of his masterpiece will teach you. So: a qualified recommendation. If you really want to deepen your knowledge of Lewis, read his correspondance.

2.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't have what attracted me to CS Lewis 11 Jun 2013
By Robert Daines - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
He sounds like he was a great friend and colleague of C.S. Lewis -- but I found almost none of the qualities of mind and writing that make CS Lewis so compelling. CS Lewis, a better mind obviously, found more here to engage him than I did....or he was a loyal and good friend.. or both.
