Some of the topics and tales I find most interesting:
On Knowledge and the Meaning of Life: 'Solaris' by Stanislaw Lem
On Trips through Time and Logical Space: 'All You Zombies' by Robert Heinlein (one of the best stories EVER)
On Persons, Minds, and the Essentially Human: 'The Bicentennial Man' by Isaac Asimov
On Moral Dilemmas: 'Seventh Victim' by Robert Scheckley
On Technology and Human Self-Transformation: 'The Machine Stops' by E.M. Forster
Each topic begins with an insightful introduction by Philips, includes several stories, and ends with study questions. Philosophy and Science Fiction is a great resource, and lots of fun!
