Philip K. Dick Book Club: Episode 145: I Will Just Never Understand You (Rautavaara’s Case)

May 18, 2019

"Rautavaara's Case" by Philip K. Dick is one of his last stories. It uses an interstellar dispute over a man's remains to explore the limits of understanding between cultures and what a truly religious system could look like. This story also asks some nice bio-medical ethics questions.
