Title: Finding morality in the postmodern : a science fiction approach
Authors: Wan, Zhong Hao
Keywords: DRNTU::Humanities
Issue Date: 2014
Abstract: This paper posits that by tracking the points of integration and deintegration of the technological Other and analysing the similarities and/or differences in how humanity interacts with the technological Other across the different texts, SF works can be seen as a means to understand morality in this postmodern era. This paper will attempt to achieve that by using Philip K. Dick’s “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep”, Kazuo Ishiguro’s “Never Let Me Go” and Spike Jonze’s “Her” as the core texts to this support this particular analysis.
