From postmodernity to final participation: talking Owen Barfield

Michael Leighty asks me, Mark Vernon, a range of questions from Barfield’s attitudes towards postmodernism to his understanding of the power of story. We explore how language is an embodied activity and what Barfield meant by final participation. We ask what he has to say to readers of Plato and what he has to say to people seeking new grounds for faith in felt experience.

In short, it’s a wide-ranging and I hope far-reaching conversation.
