This term we have learned a lot about different philosophies and how they relate to science fiction and fantasy.
The final grade for this term will be based on your ability to write an article that helps highlight a specific science fiction book or movie. (If you choose to discuss a science fiction movie/show, it must be one that was not watched in class.) This article must provide:
- A meaningful synopsis of the book/movie
- Discuss a major philosophical theme that is addressed. Giving a history of the philosophy and any major contributors.
- Compare the philosophies with the book/movie.
- Make your audience care. Meaning, provide valuable and meaningful connections for the audience to understand.
