The Journal of Inklings Studies
provides a forum for rigorous academic engagement with the thought of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Charles Williams, Owen Barfield, and their intellectual and literary peers and forebears.

The Oxford University C.S. Lewis Society
The Charles Williams Society
The Owen Barfield Literary Estate
and
The G.K. Chesterton Library. It is fully peer-reviewed and indexed in the MLA.

The Journal of Inklings Studies appears twice annually (April and October) in print and electronic formats. Subscribers have access to the full electronic archive both of JIS and of its predecessor, The C.S. Lewis Chronicle. In addition, the full archive of book reviews of both JIS and the Chronicle is on open access as a service to the growing community of Inklings readers and scholars.

C.S. Lewis and Owen Barfield: The Great War

Between 1925-1930, C.S. Lewis and his best friend, Owen Barfield, conducted a lengthy philosophical exchange they affectionately called “The Great War.” Its topic was the question whether imagination or reason was the better organ for discovering truth – Barfield passionately arguing that the imagination could reach truths inaccessible to reason, Lewis that the imagination was an unreliable organ in need of guidance and regulation by reason and authority.

Most of this exchange has remained unpublished until now.

With the kind permission of the literary estates of C.S. Lewis and Owen Barfield, the Journal of Inklings Studies is now preparing the missing texts of the Great War for publication as a special supplementary issue of the journal. The issue will include full texts of all unpublished writings within the “Great War”, including Lewis’s ‘Summae Metaphysices contra Anthroposophos’ and Barfield’s ‘De Toto et Parte’. The collection will be edited with notes by Arend Smilde and an introduction by Norbert Feinendegen.

Publication is planned for winter 2014/5. This will be a strictly limited edition, offered to subscribers, researchers and research institutions.
