Archaeologies of the Future : The Desire Called Utopia and Other Science Fictions Paperback / softback
This is a brilliant study of utopia and science fiction, from Thomas More to Philip K.
Dick, by the master literary critic. "Archaeologies of the Future", Jameson's most substantial work since "Postmodernism", investigates the development of the Utopian form since Thomas More, and interrogates the functions of Utopian thinking in a post-Communist age.
The relationship between utopia and science fiction is explored through the representations of otherness...alien life and alien worlds...and a study of the works of Philip K.
Dick, Ursula LeGuin, William Gibson, Brian Aldiss, Kim Stanley Robinson and more.
