  • Science-fiction writer Philip K. Dick (1928-1982) is the giant imagination behind so much recent popular culture - hit movies based directly on his writings, such as “Blade Runner”, “Total Recall”, “Minority Report”, and cult favorites such as “A Scanner Darkly” and “Paycheck”.

    The forthcoming publication of “Exegesis” also details many of his spiritual visions and investigations of alternate realities. In “Philip K. Dick and Philosophy”, 30 Dick fans and professional thinkers confront the fascinating and frightening ideas raised by his mind-blowing fantasies. Is there an alien world behind the everyday reality we experience? Would knowledge of the future free us or enslave us?

    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 he was able to keep perspective and humour even in his darkest times.
