KNOWLEDGE AND DEVIATION: THE SCIENCE FICTION GERNRE BETWEEN SCIENCE AND LITERATURE
MetadataShow full item record
To what extent does science modify science fiction and can this genre justify its name? What is the role of the imagination in the construction of creative impulses, in fusing the scientific achievements of reality with their artistic transformations? This paper delineates key questions relevant to the theoretical and historical understanding of the science fiction genre, to its application in the field of literature and beyond. Imagination, an essential element in Charles S. Peirce's philosophical system, is a key in the presentation of the genre of science-fiction as an impulse, a bridge between the present and the future.
