Nathan Fredrickson on “Invented Language and Invented Religion: Tolkien’s Innovative Symbolic Systems and New Religious Movements” #s311 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds #Tolkien
Fredrickson: there’s an essentialist humanistic way of thinking in #Tolkien, but also a critical, almost post-modernist emphasis on the constructiveness of things.
Fredrickson: linguistic invention has been neglected in fiction-based religions. There is some acknowledgment but not a proper consideration in #Tolkien-inspired religious movements.
Fredrickson: neologisms are crucial - as #Tolkien points out, new languages create new worldviews. This is something we need to discuss more in terms of these movements. #s311 #imc2018 @IMC_Leeds #Tolkien
