Marshall McLuhan and Northrop Frye are two of Canada's central cultural figures, colleagues and rivals whose careers unfolded in curious harmony even as their intellectual engagement was antagonistic. Poet, novelist, essayist and philosopher B.W. Powe, who studied with both of these formidable and influential intellectuals, presents an exploration of their lives and work in Marshall McLuhan and Northrop Frye: Apocalypse and Alchemy. Powe considers the existence of a unique visionary tradition of Canadian humanism and argues that McLuhan and Frye represent fraught but complementary approaches to the study of literature and to the broader engagement with culture. Examining their eloquent but often acid responses to each other, Powe exposes the scholarly controversies and personal conflicts that erupted between them, and notably the great commonalities in their writing and biographies. Using interviews, letters, notebooks, and their published texts, Powe offers a new alchemy of their thought, in which he combines the philosophical hallmarks of McLuhan's “The medium is the message” and Frye's “the great code.”

Ever feel swept up in a sea of novelty? When did the new become more important than the true? Andrew Gilchrist found a remedy to today's nausea of novelty in the most familiar elements of narrative and music. He has composed a new arrangement from the ideas of Marshall McLuhan, Northrop Frye, Bernard Lonergan, and Jordan Peterson, weaving together a promising relationship between what we believe and how we live. This book starts a conversation at the crossroads of art, literature, religion, and psychology. And it begins with the oldest of stories. A boy fell in love with a girl and sung her a song. Each chapter in this book charts a series of helpful symbols and sounds, drawing attention to the melodies, rhythms and tempos that make up our most common experiences. The scientific revolution gave birth to a new understanding of the relationship between observer and observed, lover and beloved. That birth has changed the song. However, we have not welcomed this new daughter into the family with a proper name or fully recognized her part in our spiritual development. With her wisdom, we too might find hope and delight in the back and forth journey between tradition and innovation. Could her compelling voice and playful character help us prepare for the greatest roles of our lives?
