By delving into the depths of language, this course explores how our present mode of consciousness is the result of a long period of individualisation and separation from a living, animate cosmos. Consciously participating in the language of poetry and holistic science invites us to return meaning to a meaningful world.

This literary approach to anthropology shows, on the one hand, an historical evolution from a participatory to a detached form of consciousness and, on the other hand, the path to a participatory consciousness through poetry and holistic science.

The focus of this course is on Barfield’s two major works, Poetic Diction and Saving the Appearances, with examples of holistic, participatory approaches to philosophy and science drawn from Ludwig Wittgenstein, J.W von Goethe and Rudolf Steiner.
