Our discussion for this chapter hinges on the fate of Isengard. What has happened to this once proud center of learning and good counsel? Is it all a metaphor for industrialization? If so, what does the text suggest as a viable alternative to industrialization?

The lectio section asks this question a little differently: What was it that led Saruman to betray his friends and give in to the power of Mordor (even if he saw himself as a rival to Mordor)?
