Description :

Octavo, boards. First hardcover edition. A land speculator plans a lunar eutopia with tract houses populated by simulacra to entice people to emigrate to the Moon. However, the main theme of the story is human empathy, the lack of which makes a human no different than a machine. MASA's Lincoln simulacrum proves to be more in touch with reality than the humans in Dick's future society, in which many are diagnosed as schizophrenic by the dictatorial Federal Bureau of Mental Health. Anatomy of Wonder (1987) 4-173. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, p. 338. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#84073). N° de réf. du libraire 84073

Synopsis : In this lyrical and moving novel, Philip K. Dick intertwines the story of a toxic love affair with one about sentient robots, and unflinchingly views it all through the prism of mental illness ? which spares neither human nor robot. The end result is one of Dick?s most quietly powerful works. When Louis Rosen?s electronic-organ company builds a pitch-perfect robotic replica of Abraham Lincoln, the firm is pulled into the orbit of a shady businessman, who is looking to use Lincoln for his own profit. Meanwhile, Rosen seeks Lincoln?s advice as he woos a woman incapable of understanding human emotions ? someone who may be even more robotic than Lincoln?s replica.

Synopsis: Some people are not people, they are simulacra...yet they can be more human than some other people who are people. Philip Dick explores his familiar theme, 'What is human?'
