Theory of Mind and Science Fiction introduces readers to theory of mind, a discipline that crosses disciplinary borders between psychology, neuroscience, and literature. Pagan's model of theory of mind is drawn in particular from social neuroscientist Tania Singer's distinction between 'cognitive-perspective taking' and 'emotional-perspective taking,' and also relies on Richard Maurice Bucke's notion of 'cosmic consciousness' and ground-breaking recent work positing oppositions between 'theory theory of mind' (TT) and 'simulation theory of mind ' (ST) and between 'affective empathy' and 'cognitive empathy.' By focusing in detail on key texts within the Western canon of literary science fiction - from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus to Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? this book succeeds in opening up a powerful new way of thinking not just about this particular genre but also about our humanity.
