Phainómena are the visible or apprehendable aspects of things. A phantasía, on the other hand, is a mental image, perhaps our recollection of the appearance of a thing, perhaps drawn from some other source. In Aristotelian thought, the word phantasía also names the faculty by which things are imaged or imagined to be present.

But we are getting prochronistic ourselves, and must turn to more basic questions of definition. If we are going to talk about science fantasy, we must at least consider the notions of science and fantasy themselves. I do not believe that there are entities out there for which fantasy and science are simply the proper names. If we are going to discuss these notions we shall have to begin by looking at the words themselves, rather than by trying to describe any changeless thing that might be named by such words.
