The Futurological Congress: From the Memoirs of Ijon Tichy
About the Book
THE FUTUROLOGICAL CONGRESS is one of the most daringly told stories about Ijon Tichy. Tichy is invited to a futorological convention in a Latin America republic shaken by revolution. Eventually Tichy is transferred to a world where in a grotesque convolution both the utopian and anti-utopian visions of the future have been realized. Mockery of futorology --- as always with Lem --- is accompanied by serious reflection about human disposition for discord with reality.
