In Between Literature and Science Peter Swirski examines the true intellectual scope of Edgar Allan Poe and Stanislaw Lem. His analysis of Poe's little-studied Eureka provides the basis for his discussion of Lem's critique of scientific reductionism and futurological forecasts. Swirski shows that Poe and Lem propose far-reaching hypotheses in aesthetics, epistemology, cognitive science and philosophy of science as well as in cosmology, artificial intelligence and futurology.
