Issues of psychology, and mental illness specifically, can be found frequently in various science fiction works, from Star Wars to Heinlein’s Strangers in a Strange Land (McMahon, 1989). One... More > particular science fiction writer, Philip K. Dick, uses mental illness frequently in his works, and especially in his 1964 novel Martian Time-Slip (MTS). Collections of Dick’s essays, such as The Shifting Realities of Philip K. Dick (1995), reveal Dick was quite interested in mental illness and the current theories on it during the time he was living and writing.
