Description : Read Now Philip K Dick And Philosophy by D. E. Wittkower and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. science fiction writer philip k. dick (1928–1982) is the giant imagination behind so much recent popular culture—both movies directly based on his writings, such as blade runner (based on the novel do androids dream of electric sheep?), total recall, minority report, and the adjustment bureau plus cult favorites such as a scanner darkly, imposter, next, screamers, and paycheck and works revealing his powerful influence, such as the matrix and inception. with the publication in 2011 of volume 1 of exegesis, his journal of spiritual visions and paranoic investigations, dick is fast becoming a major influence in the world of popular spirituality and occult thinking. in philip k. dick and philosophy thirty dick fans and professional thinkers confront the fascinating and frightening ideas raised by dick’s mind-blowing fantasies. is there an alien world behind the everyday reality we experience? if androids can pass as human, should they be given the same consideration as humans? do psychotics have insights into a mystical reality? would knowledge of the future free us or enslave us? this volume will also include dick's short story "adjustment team," on which the adjustment bureau is based. philip k. dick and philosophy explores the ideas of philip k. dick in the same way that he did: with an earnest desire to understand the truth of the world, but without falsely equating earnestness with a dry seriousness. dick’s work was replete with whimsical and absurdist presentations of the greatest challenges to reason and to humanity—paradox, futility, paranoia, and failure—and even at his darkest times he was able to keep some perspective and humor, as for example in choosing to name himself ‘horselover fat’ in valis at the same time as he relates his personal religious epiphanies, crises, and delusions. with the same earnest whimsy, we approach philip k. dick as a philosopher like ourselves—one who wrote almost entirely in thought-experiments and semi-fictional world-building, but who engaged with many of the greatest questions of philosophy throughout the euro-american tradition. philip k. dick and philosophy has much to offer for both serious fans and those who have recently learned his name, and realized that his work has been the inspiration for several well-known and thought-provoking films. most chapters start with one or more of the movies based on dick’s writing. from here, the authors delve deeper into the issues by bringing in philosophers' perspectives and by bringing in dick’s written work. the book invites the reader with a casual familiarity with dick to get to know his work, and invites the reader with little familiarity with philosophy to learn more. new perspectives and challenging connections and interpretations for even the most hard-core dick fans are also offered. to maximize public interest, the book prominently addresses the most widely-known films, as well as those with the most significant fan followings: blade runner, total recall, minority report, a scanner darkly, and the adjustment bureau. along with these “big five” films, a few chapters address his last novels, especially valis, which have a significant cult following of their own. there are also chapters which address short stories and novels which are currently planned for adaptation: radio free albemuth (film completed, awaiting distribution), the man in the high castle (in development by ridley scott for bbc mini-series), and “king of the elves” (disney, planned for release in 2012).

Dick and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. note: personally converted epub. philip k. dick has established himself as a major figure in american literature. the landscape of his imagination features a wealth of concepts and fictional worlds: nazi-rule in a postwar nightmare; androids and the unification of man and machine; and an existence that no longer follows the logic of reality. his vision has shaped the way we perceive the past and present and how we look to the future. this first-time collection assembles his nonfiction writings (the bulk of which either have never before been published or have appeared only in obscure and out-of-print publications) - essays, journals, speeches, and interviews. in these writings he explores issues ranging from the merging of physics and metaphysics to the potential influences of "virtual" reality and its consequences to a plot-scenario for a potential episode of "mission: impossible," to the challenge that fundamental "human" values face in the age of technology and spiritual decline. this collection is at once penetrating and entertaining. it is sure to reconfirm philip k. dick not only as an important science-fiction writer but also as an explorative thinker.

Description : Read Now Philip K Dick by Christopher Palmer and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. once solely the possession of fans and buffs, the sf author philip k dick is now finding a much wider audience, as the success of the films blade runner and minority report shows. the kind of world he predicted in his funny and frightening novels and stories is coming closer to most of us: shifting realities, unstable relations, uncertain moralities. philip k. dick: exhilaration and terror of the postmodern examines a wide range of dick's work, including his short stories and posthumously published realist novels. christopher palmer analyzes the puzzling and dazzling effects of dick's fiction, and argues that at its heart is a clash between exhilarating possibilities of transformation, and a frightening lack of ethical certainties. dick's work is seen as the inscription of his own historical predicament, the clash between humanism and postmodernism being played out in the complex forms of the fiction. the problem is never resolved, but dick's ways of imagining it become steadily more ingenious and challenging.
