History in English Words

According to Barfield, "language has preserved for us the inner, living history of man's soul." With attention to myth, science, and religion, Barfield traces the history of language from Aryan, Roman, and Greek culture to Western medieval and modern times, using various words as examples to illustrate the evolution of human consciousness.
