This conclusion argues that a close examination of animals in science fiction offers promising ways in which human subjectivity can be reconceptualised. The presence of animals in science fiction shows the complexities of animals in/and human life, and potentially enables its readers to perceive the world and other species in a different way. Science fiction provides better insight into the difficulties of human–animal exchanges and prompts a rethinking of human subjectivity and the human–animal boundary.

Keywords:   animals, science fiction, human subjectivity, human–animal exchanges, human–animal boundary
