Smith on Hanley, \u27The Metaphysics of Star Trek


Review by Anne Collins Smith on the H-PCAACA mailing list, June 1998. The Metaphysics of Star Trek by Richard Hanley. New York: Basic Books, 1997. xviii + 253 pp. $18.00 (cloth), ISBN 978-0-465-09124-9. Richard Hanley\u27s The Metaphysics of Star Trek is an engaging examination of certain philosophical issues raised within the Star Trek universe. Its title, however, is overly broad; it would be more correctly titled, The Twentieth-Century Applied Metaphysics of Star Trek. The earliest reference in the bibliography is an article written in 1950; the next earliest, 1960. The vast majority of sources are from the 1980\u27s and 1990\u27s. There is nothing wrong with this focus; it is simply a limitation that should be noted
