Fantasy, Science Fiction, and the Teaching of Values.
Prothero, James
English Journal, v79 n3 p32-34 Mar 1990
Addresses two misunderstandings about science fiction and fantasy: that fantastic literature is not serious; and that modern scientific civilization neither has nor needs mythology. Argues that values can be transmitted through science fiction and fantasy, which are modern-day forms of mythology. (RS)
