2019-12-01

A new article, "Living in a Marxist Sci-Fi World," by Lic. Matias Graffigna has just been published. This article examines, with the use of tools from phenomenological analysis, the power of science fiction to "flesh out" certain concepts left undetermined by philosophical theories, "furnishing with content" the undetermined ideas and making them more present and concrete to the reader. The author puts this into practice by examining in this manner the anarcho-communist world of Anarres, as described by Ursula Le Guin in the influential novel The Dispossessed.
