"Philip Kindred Dick" was an American people/American novelist, short story writer, essayist and philosopher whose published work is almost entirely accepted as being in the science fiction genre. Dick explored sociological, political and metaphysics/metaphysical themes in novels dominated by monopoly/monopolistic corporations, Authoritarianism/authoritarian governments, and altered states of consciousness/altered states. In his later works Dick's thematic focus strongly reflected his personal interest in metaphysics and theology. He often drew upon his own life experiences in addressing the nature of drug abuse, paranoia, schizophrenia, and Transcendence (philosophy)/transcendental experiences in novels such as A Scanner Darkly and VALIS. He also wrote extensively on philosophy, theology, the nature of reality and science later in his life that was published posthumously as The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick/The Exegesis.If you enjoy these quotes, be sure to check out other famous writers! More Philip K. Dick on Wikipedia.
The real origin of science fiction lay in the seventeenth-century novels of exploration in fabulous lands. Therefore Jules Verne's story of travel to the moon is not science fiction because they go by rocket but because of where they go. It would be as much science fiction if they went by rubber band.Philip K. Dick
