  The Science Fiction of Empire: the Best of All Possible Worlds? Published on J J by CIGH Exeter Dr Tris Kerslake, author of the book Science Fiction and Empire (), provides the final post of our multi-week roundtable on science fiction and imperial history, co-edited by Marc-William Palen and Rachel Herrmann. The history of the term “possible worlds” and its offshoots in narrative theory has been told multiple times—not least, in this book’s introduction.

The concept of possible worlds, originally introduced in philosophical logic, has recently gained interdisciplinary influence; it proves to be a productive tool when borrowed by literary theory to explain the notion of fictional worlds. In this book Ruth Ronen develops a comparative reading of the use of possible worlds in philosophy and in literary theory, and offers an analysis of the way. Key words: possible-world semantics, fiction, creativity, philosophy of logic Introduction The notions of possible-worlds semantics, fiction, and creativity are all of great importance. The notions operate in different areas; it may be hard to see the interconnection between the notions. The notion of the possible world is connected to logic.

"" the field of geography,"" James correctly notes, ""remains too little known to general public or to workers in other scholarly fields"" — and his accessible history should help to alleviate this problem. The Best of All Possible Worlds is a stunning science fiction epic that is also a beautifully wrought, deeply moving love story. A proud and reserved alien society finds its homeland destroyed in an unprovoked act of aggression, and the survivors have no choice but to reach out to the indigenous humanoids of their adopted world, to whom they.
