Steampunk, dieselpunk and cyberpunk: three genres of science fiction that people love to classify as the most popular ones. But what do they actually mean?

Steampunk, dieselpunk, and cyberpunk are all forms of science fiction that have been popularized in recent years. These genres each offer their own unique worldview and perspective on the future.

However, there are some similarities between these three genres: they mostly take place in a post-apocalyptic setting where technology has advanced to an absurd degree; they typically include alternate history plots with different outcomes than what we know from our reality, and most importantly they generally focus more on the aesthetics of society rather than hard sciences such as physics or engineering.
