According to the Keirsey Temperament website, "Rationals are very scarce, comprising as little as 5 to 7 percent of the population." Allen says, "NTs are non-conformist critical thinkers. The NTs idolize the science fiction writer as the real architects of change. They can see the cleverness and competency in science fiction. Back in the day, when you could sell a book with a rocketship on the cover, you were selling to the NT."

This inversion of man and machine is paralleled by Kubrick's choice not to reveal the makers of the monolith that inspires humanity's evolutionary advance. 2001 is about endless yearning, the constant striving to become more than what we are, for which HAL and the monolith are symbols , cited: Halo: The Cole Protocol http://oihana-gananca.com/freebooks/halo-the-cole-protocol. I 1960'erne begyndte en række forfattere under fællesbetegnelsen "den nye bølge" at skrive science fiction, hvor der i højere grad end tidligere blev lagt vægt på traditionelle litterære værdier.

And yet we found this not to be the case. Science fiction is often derided as too fanciful or not rigorous in thought. There is still a stigma against those who read it, and yet if you look at the great advances in science and technology during most of the 20th and 21st centuries, they are often preceded by descriptions in works of science fiction written decades before , source: Terran Psychosis (Cosmic Revolt Series Book 1) http://6on6.playground.wedeking.org/?freebooks/terran-psychosis-cosmic-revolt-series-book-1.

Malcolm Edwards & Maxim Jakubowski, New York: Berkeley (1982) "[Fiction] in which the author shows awareness of the nature and importance of the human activity known as the scientific method, and shows equal awareness of the great body of knowledge already collected through that activity, and takes into account in his stories the effect and possible future effects on human beings of scientific methods and scientific fact." -- Reginald Bretnor, in "The SF Book of Lists", p.257, ed The Precipice download here.

Let me be the first to admit that I often don't keep up with sf; there are serious gaps on my shelves. However, there are several sites that do keep up.

(My books only get four stars, huh, but Kelley's get five, so their ratings are not utterly insane...)

While we’re not adverse to, say, a good bit of space opera or New Wave, we’re focusing on hard science fiction in TR:SF, because these types of tales, grounded in the cutting edge of science and technology (albeit with varying degrees of artistic license), are the ones most cited by scientists and engineers as the inspiration for embarking on particular projects, or indeed, entire careers Even if history later proves it utterly off base, a good hard science fiction story makes you think “That could actually happen!” That’s certainly the case for each of our ten favorite hard science fiction books, listed in chronological order download.
