Barfield was an early exponent of Rudolf Steiner and did much to establish Anthroposophy in Great Britain. He gave a professorial lecture at the Goetheanum in August 1932 and there has been a long connection between the two.
He was a philosopher of the Evolution of Consciousness and as the “first and last Inkling”, C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien are among the leading figures influenced by his work.
