Science Fiction, Humanity, and the Mind
May 14, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm UTC+0$25
In an experience designed for fans of films like Blade Runner, Ex Machina, and Solaris, this discussion-based class will inspect how sci-fi authors depict the mind and mental identity and the way in which these depictions reflect our conceptions of humanity. We’ll work together to answer questions about human and post-human identities and the technologies that can alter perceptions of both as seen in fiction by Philip K. Dick, Stanislaw Lem, Mary Shelley, and others.
