Science Fiction is the direct product of daydreams and wanderings of imagination. Gain a broad understanding of the history of English-language science fiction literature since 1890 in terms of its diverse forms, themes, and publication media. Jules Verne was the first major science fiction author to be adapted for the screen with Melies Le Voyage dans la Lune (1902) and 20,000 lieues sous les mers (1907), which used Verne's scenarios as a framework for fantastic visuals.

Not that I am saying Wolfe selection is a bad, it’s just not mine. He’s been brought up by a race which has nothing in common with us. Snow has called "the two cultures," science and the humanities, inasmuch as this genre is both scientific and literary; 6. to gain a basic understanding of the sciences that form the backdrop for science fiction, such as astronomy, relativity theory, entropy and thermodynamics, the mathematics of chaos, ecology, computer technology, genetics, and parapsychology; 7. to acquire a particular way of seeing as it is encouraged by sf; that is, to understand the sf story as presenting a critique, often ironic, of present social conditions, and as exploring the nature and limits of our own reality; 8. to discover the connections between sf and utopian/dystopian thought and of these concepts to the problems of free will and determinism; 9. to confront the question of whether technology should be seen as humanity's saviour or destroyer, and to relate this question to the problem of human consciousness, which itself is a way of asking "What does it mean to be human?" 10. to understand how the alien encounter can be viewed as a metaphor for the exploration of the psychological and existential depths of human consciousness and how the alien landscape maps symbolically the human condition; 11. to define a variety of alternative futures, noting the plasticity of human nature and the fragility of civilization.

Dick, who aspired to be a literary writer prior to turning to science fiction, gets mixed notices, which Adam Gopnik explores in the New Yorker: As an adult reader coming back to Dick, you start off in a state of renewed wonder and then find yourself thumbing ahead to see how much farther you are going to have to go. You might say it's that all of this happened to me (and my subjects) because when I was eleven years old I wouldn't let some sketchy old woman into my house in the middle of the night.
