My review of a Thomist account of Tolkien's metaphysics (book by Jonathan S McIntosh)...

...Can be found at the Notion Club Paper's blog.


In The Flame Imperishable, Jonathan McIntosh argues that JRR Tolkien's work was written from a background in Thomistic philosophy - which Tolkien absorbed during his childhood, especially; and furthermore that Tolkien's major work in the Lord of the Rings and the Silmarillion was written such as to be compatible-with the basic principles of Thomism.

This, McIntosh proves!...
