The mythology of our civilization is the story of things to come. The prophetic visions of writers such as Asimov, Brunner, Clarke, Gibson, Heinlein, Herbert, Hogan, LeGuin, Lem and Niven offer endless playgrounds for the imagination. Their second gift is a widening vista or real alternatives: our future may be what they let us choose to make it. If you want to play an informed part in that choice, this course will provide the menu.
This course will require you to be online for live lectures at the scheduled time. There will also be some pre-recorded lectures. Class recordings will be available until the exam period. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
