In The Postmodern Humanism of Philip K. Dick, Jason Vest examines how Dick adapted the conventions of science fiction and postmodernism to reflect humanist concerns about the difficulties of maintaining identity, agency, and autonomy in the latter half of the 20th century. Vest also explores Dick's literary relationship to Franz Kafka, Jorge Luis Borges, and Italo Calvino.
