Iain M Banks, Ernst Bloch and Utopian Interventions
journal contributionposted on 2017-05-22, 04:12 authored by Michał Kulbicki
This paper will develop a reading of Iain M Bankss Culture novels using notions about utopian hope drawn from the work of the German philosopher, Ernst Bloch. Since there are seven novels, a novella and a short story in the series, I will not enter into great detail about particular works, but will rather focus on their overarching theme, albeit with specific refer-ence to the third book, Use of Weapons.
