Originally published by Rand McNally in 1974, this volume investigates the applicability of science fiction to the study of social foundations of education and its problems. The editors argue that science fiction is an ideal tool for analyzing the problems because it does not possess limitations on the nature of problematic inquiry; its boundary of inquiry is subject only to that of the human imagination. Science fiction offers the student of school and society a methodological tool by which man and his relationships) actual and possible) may be studied. The possibility of ideas simply reinforces their probability, and the link between the present and the future becomes the human imagination.
