The Inklings and the Evolution of Consciousness: a trialogue

Jeremy Johnson writes: In this much anticipated episode, Becca Tarnas and Mark Vernon return to the Mutations podcast for a trialogue on the Inklings and the evolution of consciousness. Together we explore the prescience and relevance of J.R.R. Tolkien, Owen Barfield, and Jean Gebser respectively, during a time when history and myth appear to be intersecting, intensifying. I was honored and inspired to have Becca and Mark back for this trialogue, and I’d like to think our itself was in the spirit of the historical Inklings at the Bird and Baby pub in Oxford, in the 20th century. I look forward to when, someday after this lockdown is over, we might do this again together, and in person.
