Product Overview

Philosophy Through Science Fiction offers a fun, challenging, and accessible way in to the issues of philosophy through the genre of science fiction. Tackling problems such as the possibility of time travel, or what makes someone the same person over time, the authors take a four-pronged approach to each issue, providing

? a clear and concise introduction to each subject

? a science fiction story that exemplifies a feature of the philosophical discussion

? historical and contemporary philosophical texts that investigate the issue with rigor, and

? glossary, plot profiles of pertinent science fiction stories and films, and questions for further reflection.

Philosophy Through Science Fiction includes stories from contemporary science fiction writers including Greg Egan and Mike Resnick, as well as from classic authors like Philip K. Dick and Robert Heinlein. Philosophy readings include historical pieces by Ren? Descartes and David Hume, and contemporary pieces by John Searle and Mary Midgley.
