Worlds Apart: A Dialogue of The 1960's
Worlds Apart: A Dialogue of the 60's is a fictional conversation among eight people: a physicist, a biologist, a theologian, a philosopher, a psychiatrist, a teacher, a rocket scientist, and a lawyer. Energetic, wide-ranging and deeply penetrating, this brilliantly witty book points toward a solution to a major problem of our time, the gap between specializations. As the sheer bulk of human knowledge demands ever increasing specialization, is man losing sight of the wholeness of life? Owen Barfield is one of the twentieth century's most significant writers and thinkers. Widely renowned for his insight and literary artistry, Barfield addresses key concerns of the sciences, humanities, social sciences, and arts in our time. His fellow Inklings, C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, are among the leading figures influenced by Barfield's work. "A journey into seas of thought very far from ordinary routes of intellectual shipping" T.S. Eliot
