Cyberpunk stories are frequently set in urban areas, with a dark atmosphere and a pessimistic mood. Of all genres, science fiction is thus the one most devoted to the historical concreteness and rigorous self-reflectiveness of critical theory.

Looking over this thread again, it dawns on me that a major part of cyberpunk was these folks took economics, or at least the corporation, seriously for the first time since Pohl, Kornbluth, etc. back in the Fifties, and which was a thread that soon attenuated out back in the day.
