Abstracts

The article focuses on the referential function of science fiction and its relations to speculative anthropology and anthropological fiction. The methodological context for this analysis consists of Andrzej Stoff’s concept of literary images in science-fiction novels, Fredric Jameson’s archaeology of the future, and Roman Jakobson’s theory of the referential function of language. The texts analyzed herein are two novels: by Stanisław Lem (Solaris) and Peter Watts (Blindsight). These works are analyzed as procedurals — novels emphasizing sequences of scientific (anthropological) procedures and discussing cultural categories such as “otherness,” “race,” and “anthropocentrism.”
