The Future of The Discarded Image

Curious-Ape-LogoIt has been a while since we last posted on this site. Many of you might be wondering if we’re still alive or if we’ve moved on. Here’s the short version.

For several years now, Mindy and I have had The Discarded Image as our home for exploring new ideas and literature publicly. We’ve always done this within the context of C.S. Lewis’s metaphor. For Lewis, old worldviews, or “images,” are discarded when they collapse under the weight of new information. With some irony, our public pursuit of a better understanding of the world and the constant discarding of old ideas has also led us to discard The Discarded Image.

We’ve loved writing at this blog, but we felt we needed a place that no longer focused on what we had been—circumscribed by the limits of our backgrounds—but one that looked forward to what we could become. A place to celebrate human curiosity broadly and demonstrate that inquisitiveness in action.

Our new home, The Curious Ape, is our next chapter, and we welcome other curious apes.

We thank everyone for faithfully reading The Discarded Image. We will keep our archives active. But if you’ve enjoyed this blog, know that you may also enjoy The Curious Ape. To learn more, read our post “Introducing The Curious Ape.”
