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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Between Literature and Science makes a significant contribution to Poe scholarship, Lem scholarship, literary theory, philosophy and literature, epistemology, and aesthetics... It stands out from the rank and file of academic books by virtue of the breadth and depth of the reading and thinking it exemplifies and conveys. -- Paisley Livingston
Breaking free of the doldrums of postmodernist thought, Swirski writes with directness and vigor, and gives new hope for the future of literary studies. -- Jerrold Levinson
