A Philosophy of Science Fiction
In the field of art there are two types of theories, theses, and these are called Art and the Theory. The thesis is something that stands on its own, it is not part of any system or an overall approach to art. For example, the great artist Picasso said “I am not much interested in knowing how things look, I am interested in thinking about them”. This is similar to saying, “I don’t really care how things look, I just want to see them”. Theses can be called principal elements of a theory. This thesis can then be developed further, by adding or deleting elements as it became necessary.
