||透過M. Houellebecq 和M. Dantec 的哲學小說來探討以技術科學當做新興宗教 的現象與基督/ 反基督的未來主義 本項預計為期兩年的研究計畫是以剖析兩位當代法國作家: Michel Houellebecq 和Maurice Dantec 的小說為主。 這兩位深受科幻文學和電腦龐克小說潮流影響的作家可以說是法國當前新未來 主義文學的代表。在他們的書中更充斥著和宗教有關的主題。然而，兩者在這個 問題的處理上卻截然不同：Michel Houellebecq 將宗教唯物論化；Maurice Dantec 則是將技術科學靈性化。對兩位作家而言，身體和身體的進化乃是其書中論述的 焦點。 本項研究於是將深入而仔細地探討兩位作家書中交織著宗教和科幻等的主題。 筆者所提出的這項計畫是個跨領域的研究, 橫跨科幻文學理論、宗教/神學和哲 學四個領域。
Techno-science as religion and Christian/anti-Christian futurism through the philosophical novels of M. Houellebecq and M. Dantec This project in two year is centered on the analysis of the novels by two French contemporary authors, Michel Houellebecq and Maurice Dantec. They represent the new generation of Futurism literature, both having been strongly influenced by sci-fi and techno-punk movement. Moreover, there is a evident presence in their novels of religious themes, treated in a contrastive way: M. Houellebecq translates religious themes within a strong materialistic setting, while M. Dantec spiritualizes some aspects of the techno-science. Those themes revolve around the body and its transformations and for both authors, the body is used as a point of focalization of the narration. This research project is a detailed examination of the meshing of religious and sci-fi themes in the work of those two authors. The research project I submit here is, specially in the case of M. Dantec, a pioneer study. It is conceived from the start as an interdisciplinary study, at the cross-road between sci-fi literature theory, religious studies/theology and philosophy.
