It is now just over a month since the publication of The Matter with Things. Sales have exceeded all expectations and we would like to thank you for your continued interest and enthusiasm. As many of you have asked, in this newsletter we have information about sending The Matter with Things to someone as a gift for Christmas as well as helpful information about gifting Channel McGilchrist membership. We would also like to highlight new videos and interviews from recent events including the How To Academy talks.
Gifting The Matter with Things
If you would like to order The Matter with Things for yourself or as a gift for someone for Christmas, ordering through Channel McGilchrist before 20th December (UK only) should ensure that the recipient receives it in time for Christmas. To send the book to someone else, fill in your name when ordering here, add the recipient’s name in the Company Name field and add the recipient’s address in the address field.
Gifting Channel McGilchrist membership
If you would like to give someone Channel McGilchrist membership as a gift for either three months or a year, simply select the ‘This is a Gift’ option from the purchase page here.
How To Academy Event with Philip Pullman
The event with Philip Pullman and Iain marked the publication date of The Matter with Things. Below you will find the podcast of their extraordinary conversation, where Philip said;
‘This is the most extraordinary book. It’s got evidence on every page of a mind that is stocked so richly and has meditated so long and so clearly on the most important subject we can face. I can’t recommend it enough: it’s an astonishing book that will change many, many people’s lives.’
How To Academy Event with John Cleese
This brilliant event with Iain and John Cleese in London last month has been divided into four parts which you can find below.

Channel McGilchrist Membership
For members, a new video was released this week of a conversation between Iain and Alisdair Duckworth. This was recorded while Iain was completing his new book, and while Alisdair was researching ideas for his own book. In this conversation the two discuss some of the themes from The Matter with Things including opposites and paradox. To find out about becoming a member of Channel McGilchrist click here.
