But together, as Horan explains, they paint a more hopeful picture: one that speaks to the power of desire to create empathy and inspire action across profound ideological differences. White explores the history and imaginative power of the idea that the universe has higher, invisible dimensions. As players sate their curiosity, however, they also must come to terms with their complete lack of agency in the universe.

In this timely and wide-ranging study, Karsten Stueber argues that empathy is epistemically central for our folk-psychological understanding of other agents—that it is something we cannot do without in order to gain understanding of other minds.
They also invite us to think about how memory shapes our understanding of the past, and how fiction engages our emotions, our capacity to empathise, and our desire to discover, and what the future may hold. A pacifist committed to communist ideals, Burdekin abandoned pacifism in 1938 out of the conviction that fascism had to be fought. Frankenstein, given his life-defining obsession with resurrecting his daughter Amaya through the Devs system.
Reflecting Burdekin's analysis of the masculine element in fascist ideology, Swastika Night depicts a future in which the world has been divided between two militaristic powers: the Nazis and the Japanese. Horan approaches the Desire and Empathy in Twentieth-Century Dystopian Fiction comparatively. Many so-called acts of compassion, he says, are tainted by a subtle sense of self-importance and desire for recognition.
The worlds of Outer Wilds recall the rich environments of the Metroid series in their compelling combination of dynamic, physics-driven planetary activity with the environmental storytelling of the Nomai ruins, remnants of an ancient alien civilization that disappeared long before the time of the Hearthians.
This collection represents not only the work of a vibrant research community but aims to make a lasting contribution to the study of women in twentieth century Ireland. Aragorn excepted, it would seem, the people of the West have forgotten the ars moriendi, whereas the Rohirrim have not. For Robertson, this milieu invokes—without, importantly, allegorising—the experience of living in the Anthropocene, itself a material milieu that refuses to be collapsed down to human-centred frames of reference.
Nevertheless, this approach results in a thematic study of desire and empathy that also serves as a general overview of the major discussions surrounding these popular dystopias, making individual chapters from this study valuable for many students of dystopian literature. It covers a wide spectrum of issues including globalization, cosmopolitanism, nationhood, identity, philosophical nomadism, posthumanism, climate change, devolution and love.
The chapters in this collection discuss how fiction for children engages with some of the changes brought about by new technologies, information literacy, consumerism, migration, politics, different family structures, cosmopolitanism, new and old monsters.
The interdisciplinary, inter-institutional nature of the work gathered here aims to challenge monolithic representations of Irish female identity.
White treats the idea of the invisible dimensions historically and structures his book accordingly.
There was a second edition that I failed to notice and, now, this handsome third edition.
