Science Fiction


Category: Economics
Description: Science Fiction has proved notoriously difficult to define. It has been explained as a combination of romance, science and prophecy; as a genre based on an imagined alternative to the reader's environment; and as a form of fantastic fiction and historical literature. It has also been argued that science fiction narratives are the most engaged, socially relevant, and responsive to the modern technological environment. This Very Short Introduction doesn't offer a history of science fiction, but instead ties examples of science fiction to different historical moments, in order to demonstrate how science fiction has evolved over time. David Seed looks not only at literature, but also at drama and poetry, as well as film. Examining recurrent themes in science fiction he looks at voyages into space, the concept of the alien and alternative social identities, the role of technology in science fiction, and its relation to time - in the past, present, and future.

Magnify Science Fiction And The Moral Imagination
Science Fiction And The Moral Imagination

Science Fiction And The Moral Imagination


Category: Books
Description: In this highly original book, Russell Blackford discusses the intersection of science fiction and humanity's moral imagination. With the rise of science and technology in the 19th century, and our continually improving understanding of the cosmos, writers and thinkers soon began to imagine futures greatly different from the present. Science fiction was born out of the realization that future technoscientific advances could dramatically change the world. Along with the developments described in modern science fiction - space societies, conscious machines, and upgraded human bodies, to name but a few - come a new set of ethical challenges and new forms of ethics. Blackford identifies these issues and their reflection in science fiction. His fascinating book will appeal to anyone with an interest in philosophy or science fiction, or in how they interact. This is a seasoned, balanced analysis of a major issue in our thinking about the future, seen through the lens of science fiction, a central art of our time. Everyone from humanists to technologists should study these ideas and examples. Blackford's book is wise and savvy, and a delight to read as well. Greg Benford, author of Timescape.

The Mammoth Book Of Extreme Science Fiction


Category: Books
Description: Here are 25 stories of science fiction that push the envelope, by the biggest names in an emerging new crop of high-tech futuristic SF - including Charles Stross, Robert Reed, Alastair Reynolds, Peter Hamilton and Neal Asher. High-tech SF has made a significant comeback in the last decade, as bestselling authors successfully blend the super-science of 'hard science fiction' with real characters in an understandable scenario. It is perhaps a reflection of how technologically controlled our world is that readers increasingly look for science fiction that considers the fates of mankind as a result of increasing scientific domination. This anthology brings together the most extreme examples of the new high-tech, far-future science fiction, pushing the limits way beyond normal boundaries. The stories include: A Perpetual War Fought Within a Cosmic String, A Weapon That Could Destroy the Universe, A Machine That Detects Alternate Worlds and Creates a Choice of Christs, An Immortal Dead Man Sent To The End of the Universe, Murder in Virtual Reality, A Spaceship So Large That There is An Entire Planetary System Within It, and An Analytical Engine At The End of Time, and Encountering the Untouchable.

Make Science Experiments


Category: Books
Description: Make Science Fun 2, intended for an older more `serious' age group of 8-15, is designed for children to do actual science experiments (not just science `activities') at home. Most science experiment books aren't experiment books at all. They mostly contain fun science activities, which are fun to do & help learn science - but a fun science `activity' isn't always an experiment. A science experiment sets out to answer a question or solve a problem using a fair and controlled test. To count as a science experiment you need to take measurements, make observations and control variables. With space to write hypotheses, record results, make observations and draw graphs required, Make Science Fun 2 is a strong foundation on which to build student awareness of the importance of science in everyday lives.

Magnify More Human Than Human
More Human Than Human

More Human Than Human


Category: Fiction and Poetry
Description: The idea of creating an artificial human is an old one. One of the earliest science-fictional novels, Frankenstein, concerned itself primarily with the hubris of creation, and one's relationship to one's creator. Later versions of this artificial human story (and indeed later adaptations of Frankenstein) changed the focus to more modernist questions... What is the nature of humanity? What does it mean to be human? These stories continued through the golden age of science fiction with Isaac Asimov's I Robot story cycle, and then through post-modern iterations from new wave writers like Philip K. Dick. Today, this compelling science fiction trope persists in mass media narratives like Westworld and Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, as well as twenty-first century science fiction novels like Charles Stross's Saturn's Children and Paolo Bacigalupi's The Windup Girl. The short stories in More Human than Human demonstrate the depth and breadth of artificial humanity in contemporary science fiction. Issues of passing . . . of what it is to be human . . . of autonomy and slavery and oppression, and yes, the hubris of creation; these ideas have fascinated us for at least two hundred years, and this selection of stories demonstrates why it is such an alluring and recurring conceit.
