World War Terminus had left the Earth devastated. Through its ruins, bounty hunter Rick Deckard stalked, in search of the renegade replicants who were his prey. When he wasn't 'retiring' them with his laser weapon, he dreamed of owning a live animal - the ultimate status symbol in a world all but bereft of animal life. Then Rick got his chance: the assignment to kill six Nexus-6 targets, for a huge reward. But in Deckard's world things were never that simple, and his assignment quickly turned into a nightmare kaleidoscope of subterfuge and deceit - and the threat of death for the hunter rather than the hunted ...

»Träumen Androiden von elektrischen Schafen?« – diese Frage stellte sich Philip K. Dick im Titel seines 1968 erschienenen Romans. Ridley Scott hat danach den Film »Blade Runner« gedreht, der 1982 in die Kinos kam. Roman wie Film erzählen die Geschichte des Kopfgeldjägers Rick Deckard, der Jagd auf künstliche Menschen macht. Im Buch geht es allerdings um weit mehr: Auf einer von einem Atomkrieg verwüsteten Welt sind künstliche Tiere zu Statussymbolen geworden, eine »Mercertum« genannte Fernsehreligion treibt ihr Unwesen, und sogenannte »Stimmungsorgeln« manipulieren die Gefühle der Menschen. Und nicht nur Androiden werden auf Empathie getestet ... Die vollständige Neuübersetzung macht deutschen Lesern den Roman erstmals in seiner ganzen sprachlichen Differenziertheit zugänglich – ein Meisterwerk nicht nur der Science-Fiction-Literatur.

A masterpiece ahead of its time, a prescient rendering of a dark future, and the inspiration for the blockbuster film Blade Runner By 2021, the World War has killed millions, driving entire species into extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remain covet any living creature, and for people who can’t afford one, companies built incredibly realistic simulacra: horses, birds, cats, sheep. They’ve even built humans. Immigrants to Mars receive androids so sophisticated they are indistinguishable from true men or women. Fearful of the havoc these artificial humans can wreak, the government bans them from Earth. Driven into hiding, unauthorized androids live among human beings, undetected. Rick Deckard, an officially sanctioned bounty hunter, is commissioned to find rogue androids and “retire” them. But when cornered, androids fight back—with lethal force. Praise for Philip K. Dick “The most consistently brilliant science fiction writer in the world.”—John Brunner “A kind of pulp-fiction Kafka, a prophet.”—The New York Times “[Philip K. Dick] sees all the sparkling—and terrifying—possibilities . . . that other authors shy away from.”—Rolling Stone

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,00, Catholic University Eichstatt-Ingolstadt (Sprach- und Literaturwissenschaftliche Fakultat), course: Novel and Film, 10 entries in the bibliography, language: English, comment: This paper deals with the impact and the effects created by the somewhat ambiguous representation of human and android life in Dick's work "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" (Blade Runner), abstract: "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" is one out of at least six novels by Philip K. Dick that deal substantially with the questions surrounding androids. It is exactly the distortion between the real as the jumping-off point cited above and the hypothetical, unreal, fictional which creates a critical comment on the world the present reader lives in. The special focus on humanlike androids in "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" implies a particular philosophical issue. Of course, the somewhat murky, obscure and intransparent depiction of androids involves the problem of man-machine relationships, which can to a certain extend be equated with human-android relationships. But Dick goes a step further, pointing out the differences as well as the parallels between both the android and the human being, using ambiguous descriptions and playing with the reader's sympathy for both sides. One could even argue that Dick tried to create a kind of meeting halfway between man and android. Certainly, Dick himself faces difficulties when trying to define the android as "a thing somehow generated to deceive us in a cruel way, to cause us to think it to be one of ourselves." This description meets exactly to core of our analysis, which deals with the impact and the effects created by this somewhat ambiguous representation of human and android life."
