This paper shows how science fiction addresses the very real themes and concerns of modern society. It also supports the idea that as long as we continue to develop technologically as a species, as long as we continue to dominate our planet and begin to look to the heavens for other places to explore, there will always be a place for science fiction literature.

From the Paper:

"Science Fiction. That short phrase floods the senses with a barrage of fantastical characters, realms, alien races and intergalactic space wars. Indeed, it is easy for the casual observer of science fiction to think of it rather shallowly, as a genre of literary and film achievements based solely on their entertainment value. But, as we shall explore, SF is much more than just a new-age side-show, designed to merely dull the senses with spectacular fantasies. Upon a deeper investigation, science fiction takes on a much more profound aura, and can be classified with the greatest literary movements of all time."
