Abstract

Abstract:

The essay suggests that Ian McEwan presents science as comedy in Solar in order to debunk the idea of progress as a modern myth. Contextualizing science as an activity tied to socio-economic and individual interests, humour in Solar mocks human hubris and the belief in salvation through technological advancement.
