The shifting realities of Philip K. Dick : selected literary and philosophical writings

Philip K. Dick has established himself as a major figure in American literature. The landscape of his imagination features a wealth of concepts and fictional worlds: Nazi-rule in a postwar nightmare; androids and the unification of man and machine; and an existence that no longer follows the logic of reality. His vision has shaped the way we perceive the past and present and how we look to the future. This first-time collection assembles his nonfiction writings (the bulk of which either have never before been published or have appeared only in obscure and out-of-print publications) - essays, journals, speeches, and interviews. In these writings he explores issues ranging from the merging of physics and metaphysics to the potential influences of "virtual" reality and its consequences to a plot-scenario for a potential episode of "Mission: Impossible," to the challenge that fundamental "human" values face in the age of technology and spiritual decline.

  • "Quatre essais et conférences où la cybernétique croise Héraclite d'Ephèse, où Captain Crunch se mêle aux travaux des plus éminents spécialistes de la topographie du cerveau, où l'axe du temps n'est plus horizontal mais vertical. Ces réflexions sur l'humain, la réalité, la machine, l'androïde et les mondes constituent le pendant de l'oeuvre de fiction de Philippe K. Dick."
