  • Product Description

The book Searching for Truth and Freedom: Philip K. Dick's Works in Light of Alexis de Tocqueville's Thought proposes an original approach towards the fiction of Philip K. Dick and its film adaptations. Its novelty lays in basing its theoretical assumptions on the premises formulated by Alexis de Tocqueville, who, while influential in the fields of sociology and political theory, cannot yet be regarded as such in the fields of film or literary studies. This book utilizes analysis of Tocqueville’s predictions concerning democratic art to examine a comprehensive range of Dick’s fiction, as well as their film adaptations. The examination reveals how deeply grounded Philip K. Dick’s concerns were in American democratic aspirations and anxieties. The book will certainly be of interest to the growing number of scholars, as well as students of literature, looking for a new approach to Dick’s fiction and its film adaptations. It can also be recommended to readers interested in the application of Tocqueville’s thought to contemporary American science-fiction literature and film.
