      Science fiction quite literally means the literature of change; this includes all the modern day technological and scientific advancements to create an imaginative future. The sci-fi genre can be subdivided into astronomy, astrophysics, fantasy, science, time travel and so much more that it is beyond the scope of this article to discuss them all. Certain critics claim that Paul Valery has, in his Cahiers (Notebooks), opened the way to a new study of man by approaching the subject with methods derived from the natural sciences. The present work investigates these claims by examining closely all the scientific analogies which Valery uses to clarify his analysis of the mental mechanism Author: Theresa Parkinson.

      Science is feasible when the variables are few and can be enumerated; when their combinations are distinct and clear. We are tending toward the condition of science and aspiring to do it. The artist works out his own formulas; the interest of science lies in the art of making science. Paul .   Free Online Library: Valery: the poetics and phenomenology of night.(Paul Valery, Critical essay) by "The Modern Language Review"; Literature, writing, book reviews Night Portrayals Poetic techniques Criticism and interpretation Poetics (35) As one might expect, Valery drew on a wide array of scientific analogies in support of this.

Science for Valéry is not a discrete world of specialisms, however highly specialized each of its areas might be; nor is it seen as simply providing a vague analogy with the processes of the mind; it is admired for the model it presents of the way to approach problems and for the 'imaginative logic' it brings to particular issues.
