What Coleridge Thought

EPUB EBook by Owen Barfield

EBook Description

This is a book that will amaze and challenge you. What Coleridge Thought EPUB EBookSamuel Taylor Coleridge applied his theology to life in ways that have fallen out of favor in our mass- EPUBconsumer culture and he did so in ways that we can still learn from.Following Barfield's reasoning is a discipline, in and of itself.But, if you do the active work of following the chains of reasoning that he builds from Coleridge's romantic insights into theology, then you will reach some peaks you have never climbed before.

The discussions in this book of the distinctions between the passivity of "attending" and the activity of "thinking," between the primary and secondary imaginations, between "fantasy" and "imagination", and of how much thinking will be unconscious if we allow it to be (instead of paying attention to from where our assumptions derive) ... all these are distinctions that could make a great difference in the way that you look at the world around you.

Note: While this is an excellent book, it is probably best read alongside of Barfield's Saving the Appearances: A Study in Idolatry, which reasons a little more slowly in order to make some of the same ideas more intelligible for beginning thinkers.
