Brian Aldiss' definition of science fiction

More still too ill to post filler today.
Science fiction is the search for a definition of man and his status in the universe which will stand in our advanced but confused state of knowledge (science) and is characteristically cast in the Gothic or post-Gothic mould.
From Aldiss' Billion Year Spree.

Does that work for you as a definition?
