Paul List and Ali Ghaffari on Tolkien, Technology, and the Modern Age

Hosted byCLT|

On this episode of Anchored, Jeremy is joined by Paul List and Ali Ghaffari, co-authors of the new book Mount Doom: The Prophecy of Tolkien Revealed. The three examine the mythology of Tolkien’s works, examining many of the psychological, spiritual, and philosophical themes and allegories present throughout. This supports their argument that Tolkien foresaw an over-reliance on technology and artificial intelligence that afflicts society in the current age. They also discuss Tolkien’s Catholic faith and the influence it had on his life and writings.
