in literature, fantasy perpetuates medieval metaphors, while science fiction creates our contemporary metaphors.
for instance, fantasy tends to revolve around battles between 'good' and 'evil', whereas science fiction often applies a more relativistic form of morality, or none at all. and robots.

science fiction creates our contemporary metaphors, whereas fantasy literature perpetuates medieval metaphors.
for instance, in medieval times, people who saw strange lights or experienced other strange phenonema described the experiences in terms of meeting angels or pixies, whereas, nowadays, thanks to science fiction, people are as likely to interpret these experiences as alien visitations, abductions, or ufo sightings.
