Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview on the fictional planet in Kepler's dream, Godwin's The Man in the Moone and Cyrano de Bergerac's Other World, which shows the evidences of Copernican theses (Earth's rotation, planets argument, heliocentrism). It examines the Kepler's dream at the planning level of the book with respect to perspective changes and fictionality markings that are understandable as transformation of methodological implications of the text. The chapter shows how earthly Anthropocentrism be inverted in zoology and cosmology of the inhabitants of the moon. The translation of the globe into a cartographic image mode provides an acceptable and functioning imagination frame for the reader. The contrary evidence simulations of the dream reveal a fundamental ambivalence of seeing. The simulation of the eyewitness focuses on the methodological valence of sensual empiricism.The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Cyrano de Bergerac's; Kepler's dream
