A New Perspective on Tolkien's Classics

“Mount Doom”  is a fascinating book that delves into the prophetic message of J.R.R. Tolkien, one of the greatest fantasy writers of all time. The book explores Tolkien’s concerns about artificial intelligence and how he predicted that it would be a danger to our individual and collective humanity.

The author draws on Tolkien’s life and works, including, “The Silmarillion,” The Hobbit,” and  “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, to show how Tolkien’s philosophy and beliefs were influenced by his studies of St. Thomas Aquinas and Aristotle. The book also examines how Tolkien’s experience with Alan Turing, the father of computer science, influenced his ideas and literary vision.

The book “Mount Doom” fearlessly addresses Tolkien’s own disdain for a specific kind of allegory. Authors Paul List and Ali Ghaffari demonstrate the subtle way that Tolkien relies on his faith and experience to weave profound truths into the true meaning behind beloved characters from Tolkien’s works. These characters include hobbits, Maiar, Iluvatar, and Sauron. Through their analysis, the authors illustrate the potential consequences of blindly embracing technological advancement. Ultimately, “Mount Doom” offers a cautionary tale that urges readers to consider the long-term effects of our technological creations and to approach them with a healthy dose of skepticism and critical thinking. Rekindle your love for these classic stories and rediscover your place in the fight for our world.
