abstract

In its rigorous and highly normative framework, the detective story often allows productive analyses on the functioning of its mechanisms and on the role of its elements when it is subjected to structural infringements in order to obtain specific narrative effects. The Minority Report (1956), science fiction story by Philip K. Dick, represents a particular case of ‘science fiction detective story’, a cross between science fiction and the context of the detective investigation, in which the knowability itself of reality and criminal actions change radically, thus providing the starting point for some considerations on how some key elements of the detective story are modified (or how, despite the different approach, they keep their role and function) in a context that represents a substantial and basic infringement of the genre scheme.
