    "The Concept of Evil" is an analysis of Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings". If you have a kindle it is available for free download tomorrow 22nd January.
    The "Lord of the Rings" is many things, among them it is a myth about the conflict between good and evil. How much light (or darkness) it throws on this issue is the subject of "The Concept of Evil".
    Like I say, it's free to download tomorrow.

  2. The Concept of Evil seems to be taking The Lord of
    the Rings apart in order to understand what it is about. Gandalf warns
    against just this sort of thing. "He that breaks a thing to find out
    what it is, has left the path of true wisdom."

    Perhaps I am not on the path of true wisdom. [​IMG]
    I think the whole is more than the sum of the parts but that doesn't stop me wanting to understand the parts.
