Social science fiction, Aldous Huxley, Brave New world, Ahmed Khaled Tawfiq, Utopia


This paper seeks to approach two novels from the perspective of social science fiction using the analytical-social approach. The first novel is “A brave new world" of the British writer Aldous Huxley while the second novel "Utopia" by the Egyptian writer, Ahmed Khaled Tawfiq. It deals with the concept of science fiction in general and the socio-scientific field by the authors of these two novels. It also seeks to identify the social views in the literature of English and Arab science fiction and the extent to which this theory corresponds to the opinions of the two novelists. The results of the study showed that the two novels take social science fiction as their primary subject and that there are similarities in the topics addressed by the two novels. We find this similarity in the title, which is some kind of paradox. Both novels highlighted the subjects of the future of human science, such as the world’s dictatorial system, class and conflict in drug use and the elimination of individualism
