Objectives: 1. to understand the nature, and perhaps the "art," of literature called "fantasy" and literature called "science fiction," 2. to explain fantasy as a non-discursive discourse, universal in history, that, depending upon the age and culture in which it is created or composed, represents the idea of man and the physics of the world proper to that age and culture, 3. to explain science fiction as a species of fantasy that arises in history with the ages of reason, science, industry, technology, electronics, nuclear physics, extra-galactic astronomy, etc. (it is a very discursive or expositional fictional literature which presents the idea of man and the physics of the world as they have developed during the 19th and 20th centuries), 4. to present an overview of the historical and current character of fantasy and science fiction, 5. to see the universal topicality of fantasy and science fiction (it is about everything, from the most speechless of religious mystiques to the most analytical and empirical of scientific disciplines, from aesthetics to pragmatics, from lyric poem to warehouse inventory), 6. to perceive that the "quality" ("beauty"?) of works of fantasy and science fiction is found just as that of all art—in the excellence with which the form (the story-telling) fits the matter (the story), 7. fantasy and science fiction are often vehicles of imaginative escape, 8. to see that fantasy, by the very alienness of its setting and its characters' anatomies, provides a fresh perspective upon spiritual and psychological reality, 9. to see how science fiction, far being a literature than can predict the future, concentrates upon history and the present, maintaining the classical dialectic of "ancients and moderns," 10. to hear specialists from a variety of disciplines, such as religion, sociology, chemistry, and physics, often to try on a "speculative mood," in addressing a particular work of fantasy or science fiction read in the course, 11. to discover that fantasy and science fiction are not trivial—that, in fact, they are some of the most important cultural phenomena of the 20th century."

This class is intended as a discussion of 21st century social and scientific philosophy through science fiction. We draw in from a panoramic long shot to Deckard, ‘ex-cop, ex-killer, ex-blade-runner’, who is at the heart of this film. Clement's gas-giant is neither nightmarish nor grotesque, but merely accurate. I think it is a tremendous volume that shows how much scholars and readers in two different traditions can gain from expanding their horizons and bringing all of this rich material into one conversation.
