Freedman notes that the knowledge one gains in a work of sf is often entirely
imaginary, although it may be based on solid scientific principles. In other
respects, Freedman's conception of sf recapitulates that of Suvin: sf implies

Building on Suvin's definition, Carl Freedman in Critical Theory and Science
Fiction claims that in the realm of science fiction reader cognition depends upon
how '“the attitude of the text itself” produces estrangement, so the key ingredient
of science fiction is not cognition per se but 'cognitive effect' (18). Freedman sees
science fiction as a genre that is 'critical-theoretical' which in keeping with
Freedman's bias means that it is essentially Marxist. For a lively summary of
Freedman's ...
