Since the inception of the Baconian method, “fact” and “fiction” have represented a cultural dichotomy, and they are still taken to be oppositional by partisans of experimental and applied science. “Plain style” has been taken to be the official language of scientific prose, and has been sharply contrasted with the flights of fancy and imaginative conceits of the poets. And yet, figurality is pervasive in scientific discourse, and hybridization and cross fertilization seem to be recurring experiences in the relationship between literature and science. This volume is entirely devoted to this issue, and to the ex­ploration of the frequent hybrid instances of “fiction in science and science in fiction”.
