The Philosophy of Tolkien: The Worldview Behind The Lord of the Rings


Product Description

Imported from USA

While nothing can equal or replace the adventure in reading Tolkien’s masterwork, The Lord of the Rings, Peter Kreeft
says that the journey into its underlying philosophy can be another exhilarating adventure. Thus, Kreeft takes the
reader on a voyage of discovery into the philosophical bones of Middle earth. He organizes the philosophical themes in
The Lord of the Rings into 50 categories, accompanied by over 1,000 references to the text of Lord. Since many of the
great questions of philosophy are included in the 50-theme outline, this book can also be read as an engaging
introduction to philosophy. For each of the philosophical topics in Lord, Kreeft presents tools by which they can be
understood. Illustrated.
