Science Fiction and Philosophy deals with science-fictional thought
experiments and their long history in philosophy, with roots back
to the mythological inventions of ancient philosophers such as
Plato and Zhuangzi. These thought experiments play a prominent role
especially in current metaphysical theorizing about personal
identity, artificial minds, and the nature of time. This issue
includes reflections on the nature of science fiction, on the
epistemology of science fictional thought experiments, on our
possible moral and social relationships with future intelligent
beings, on the prospects of human or post-human
self-transformation, and on time travel. While most of the
contributions are expository essays written in the typical style of
journal articles, two of the contributions are original short
stories written by prominent SF writers whose writing is informed
by the advanced graduate work they have done in philosophy.
