Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


As a leading member of the British New Wave of science fiction, Brian Aldiss helped transform the traditional genre into a more progressive one by challenging its formal, philosophical, and moral bases. Aldiss’s novels of the late 1960s engage with the intellectual possibilities of psychotropic drugs, suggesting that they allow the human mind to comprehend a fuller, more nuanced picture of reality than Newtonian physics can allow.
