Last Frontier: Imagining Other Worlds, From the Copernican Revolution to Modern Science Fiction
Karl S. Guthke (au); Helen Atkins (tr). This book, originally published in Germany in 1983, is a brilliant & detailed thematic study of one of the most haunting problems mankind has ever considered: Are we alone in the universe? The book traces the development of the idea that Earth is not the only planet inhabited by intelligent beings, but that there might be a plurality or even an infinity of “worlds” with human or humanoid life. Focusing on the period from the 17th to the 20th centuries & taking into account theological, philosophical, scientific, popular, & literary writings from American, British, French, & German sources, Karl S. Guthke demonstrates the continuing importance of this question to the process of human self-definition. An engaging, lucid adventure in the history of ideas.
