“The single most resonant and carefully imagined book of Dick’s career.” —New York Times It’s America in 1962. Slavery is legal once again. The few Jews who still survive hide under assumed names. In San Francisco, the I Ching is as common as the Yellow Pages. All because some twenty years earlier the United States lost a war—and is now occupied by Nazi Germany and Japan. This harrowing, Hugo Award–winning novel is the work that established Philip K. Dick as an innovator in science fiction while breaking the barrier between science fiction and the serious novel of ideas. In it Dick offers a haunting vision of history as a nightmare from which it may just be possible to wake. Winner of the Hugo Award

The Man in the High Castle is an Amazon TV show, based on the Philip K. Dick novel, about an “alternate present” (beginning in the 1960s) in which Germany and Japan won World War II, with the former Western US occupied by Japan, the former Eastern US occupied by Nazi Germany, and a small “neutral zone” between them. A theme of the story is that in this alternative world there is eager speculation, fueled by the illicit newsreel, The Grasshopper Lies Heavy, about how the world would have been different if America had won the war. In The Man in the High Castle and Philosophy, twenty-two professional thinkers look at philosophical issues raised by this ongoing enterprise in “alternative history.” One question is whether it really made a profound difference that the Allies won the war, and exactly what differences in everyday life we may expect to arise from an apparent historical turning point. Could it be that some dramatic historical events have only superficial consequences, while some unnoticed occurrences lead to catastrophic results? Another topic is the quest for truth in a world of government misinformation, and how dissenting organizations can make headway.

Was wäre, wenn die Achsenmächte den Zweiten Weltkrieg gewonnen hätten? Und sich Hitler mit Japan die USA geteilt hätte? Die Grenze durch die Rocky Mountains verliefe, wo es neutrale Pufferstaaten gäbe? Und dort ein ›Orakel vom Berge‹? Vor dieser Unwirklichkeit flüchten die Menschen in ein Buch über die ›Heuschrecken‹, in der die Welt so dargestellt wird, wie sie eher unserer Wirklichkeit gleicht – aber nur fast, oder ist es wirklich ganz anders herum? Das ›Orakel vom Berge‹ (1962) ist gegen den Strich erzählte Historie und ein legendärer Klassiker der amerikanischen Literatur. Das Buch zur US-Kultserie »The Man in the High Castle«!

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2018 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Neuere Deutsche Literatur, Note: 2,0, Universität Mannheim, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Diese Arbeit ist in zwei Teile gegliedert. Im ersten Abschnitt wird zunächst das Genre der alternate histories vorgestellt, bevor eine genauere Zuordnung des Romans in eine der jeweiligen Untergruppen des Genres erfolgt. Danach werden die beiden in "The Man in the High Castle" vorkommenden Alternativwelten genauer dargestellt. Es wird der Frage nachgegangen, wie es in den einzelnen Welten überhaupt zu den geschilderten Geschehnissen kommen konnte. An dieser Stelle muss natürlich auch geprüft werden, ob es sich bei den Alternativwelten um realistische Parallelen handelt oder sie eine reine Utopie der Phantasie Dicks darstellen. Im zweiten Teil liegt der Fokus vor allem auf dem Verhältnis zwischen den Besetzern und den Besetzten der PSA, dem japanischen Territorium an der Westküste Amerikas. Wie treten die jeweiligen Akteure beider Fraktionen zum Vorschein und wie groß ist der Einfluss, den die Japaner auf die Amerikaner ausüben? Wie sieht das Leben an der Westküste Amerikas aus? Wie finden sich die USA, die Kolonisatoren der Welt, in einem Zustand der Unterwürfigkeit zurecht? Jeder von uns hat sich schon einmal mit dem Gedanken beschäftigt, wie sein Leben wohl verlaufen wäre,
