Jake Sherman (1974- )
Jake Sherman graduated summa cum laude with a BA in religious studies (esp. mystical studies) from Pepperdine University in 1997.  At Regent College, Vancouver, BC, he wrote an M.A. thesis entitled An Ever Diverse Pair: Owen Barfield, Teilhard de Chardin, and the Evolution of Consciousness,  which examines their respective evolutionary systems and critiques Teilhard from a Barfieldian standpoint and then attempts to bring the best of both systems together (inasmuch as possible) for a fuller synthesis. He is currently pursuing a doctoral degree at the California Institute of Integral Studies.
