Ever since the term "science fiction" emerged in the early 20th century, scholars have debated the nature of the genre's origins.  Science fiction in its present form would not exist without the golden age of Arabic science and the influential philosophical and fantastical texts that were produced.  This presentation will discuss those classical texts.
