Historians of the Future
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 06 September 2018
Science fiction, the literature about the future, is a genre of considerable age and distinguished lineage—or so say its practitioners and afficionados, who have inducted Plato, Thomas More, Campanella, and Poe posthumously into their ranks. This can be seen as a charming historical corrective, but it is more: an invocation of great minds of the past to draw attention to serious discussion of the future and make it worthy of our consideration.
