DefinitionEdit

A school extramuros whose students may be collected into maths as fids during Apert. From "under the vines" (p. 126 Anathem). Cf. "academy", derived from the name of the garden outside Athens where Plato taught.


Is this also a pun on the name of science fiction critic Darko Suvin who defined sf as a literature of "cognitive estrangement"?
