Guest Lecture: Kierkegaard, Derrida and Paul in The Lord of the Rings

Hoping Against Hope: Kierkegaard, Derrida and Paul in The Lord of the Rings: Join Dr. John Whitmire for a look at J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings through the lens of existential and postmodern philosophy. Challenging our everyday notions of hope, Dr. Whitmire will demonstrate that, to Tolkien, hope exists only in the face of impending tragedy, loss, and despair.
