Om Exploring the Limits of the Human throug
Exploring the Limits of the Human through Science Fiction examines the genre of science fiction as its own form of critical theory and argues that it proves crucial to understanding the human in the postmodern era. Featuring chapters on novels, films, and anime, Gerald Alva Miller, Jr.s scholarship intervenes in a diverse array of theoretical schools, including gender theory, psychoanalysis, political theory, and posthumanism. Through its engagement with different kinds of texts, this study represents a new way of approaching both science fiction and critical theory, and it uses both to question what it means to be human in the digital era.
