Product Description


Peter Kreeft
While nothing can equal or replace the adventure in reading Tolkien's masterwork, 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.

Reviews
"Peter Kreeft writes so well! He is a master of profundity and succinctness, an author with an uncanny ability to plumb the philosophical depths without ever losing the clarity required to illumine those depths to the average reader. What a joy to see his acrobatic mind capering with philosophical delight in the presence of elves, hobbits, men, dwarves and angels. This book is Kreeftcraft at its best."
- Joseph Pearce: Author, Tolkien: Man and Myth 

"Kreeft shows how Tolkien gives a very convincing myth or vision which makes sense of reality and gives arguments for them. This is an exciting and insightful book."
- Richard Purtill: Author, J.R.R. Tolkien: Myth, Morality, and Religion
