PDF/EPUB The Foundation Trilogy: Foundation, Foundation and Empire; Ö pandora

Basandosi sulla lettura di Storia del declino e della caduta dell'Impero romano di Edward Gibbon Asimov realizzò un geniale affresco del lontano futuro dell'umanità introducendo un concetto uello della psicostoria che affascinerà sociologi e psicologi per anni La psicostoria elemento sintomatico della coscienza positivista di Asimov si basa sull'idea della prevedibilità dei comportamenti delle masse mediante formule matematiche Nel tentativo di limitare a pochi secoli il periodo di barbarie che sicuramente subentrerà dopo la caduta dello smisurato Impero Galattico lo psicostoriografo Hari Seldom dà vita alla Fondazione un'organizzazione di scienziati e mercanti che avrà il compito di riportare la civiltà nella Galassia

    English FoundationSeries Italiano«HARI SELDON born in the 11988th year of the Galactic Era; died 12069»Five hundred years of history of space in which the Galactic Empire gives way to the Foundation an entity created by the mathematician Hari Seldon in order to minimize tens of thousands of years of chaos and barbarity to a few hundred Probably one of the most ambitious sci fi pieces ever writtenThe laws of history are absolute as the ones of physics The difference is that history has to deal with humans who are significantly less than atoms therefore they are subject to greater variability BrilliantVote 8«HARI SELDON nato nell'anno 11988 dell'Era Galattica morto nel 12069»Cinuecento anni di storia dello spazio che vedono l'Impero Galattico cedere il passo alla Fondazione un'entità fondata dal matematico Hari Seldon allo scopo di ridurre decine di migliaia di anni di caos e barbarie a poche centinaia Probabilmente una delle opere di fantascienza più ambiziose ad essere mai stata scrittaLe leggi della storia sono assolute uanto uelle della fisica La differenza è che la storia ha a che fare con gli esseri umani che sono molto meno degli atomi e uindi soggetti a più variabilità GenialeVoto 8

    d have you read the foundation series yet? if not shame on you it might be a little dry but it's the finest bit of sci fi world building that i think i've ever read yeah yeah people will argue with me about that but some of the worlds people build i have a really hard time actually seeing no matter how much detail there is but with asimov i felt like i was there this place was real and might truly be a part of our far future and psycho history is an amazing concept i might even say it changed how i looked at REAL history after that it's one of those series of novels that sticks in your head for YEARS afterwards and actually gives you new tools with which to look at your own reality if that makes any senseasimov is one of my idols and i don't have many everything he's written is worth reading though good luck 'cause he wrote a book a month for most of his life but the foundation series should be reuired reading for everybody e

    The trilogy of books Foundation Foundation and Empire and Second Foundation are among the best Asimov ever wrote among his science fiction novels and among his most influential I've read it was based on Gibbon's Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire Only this empire spans the galaxy Hari Seldon predicts through psychohistory the empire will fall within 300 years and establishes a foundation to manipulate history to shorten the dark ages that will follow The fascination is seeing how all that plays out especially in the first book Foundation and Empire is less episodic than the first and features one of Asimov's most complex and compelling characters the Mule as well as a strong female character Bayta and a clever twist Second Foundation also features a strong female character Arkady Darell The first three books in the series were written in the early 1950s and at times it shows Asimov considered himself a feminist and created strong female characters especially Susan Calvin in his Robot stories but even so there are blindspots and occasional gender fail because class? This was the fifties The trilogy is dated in other ways technological and social advances Asimov didn't foresee but for all that I think this is still a fantastic read rich in ideas Asimov returned to the Foundation Series in the 80s with Foundation's Edge and other seuels and preuels merging aspects of the Robot series with it represented in this volume by Naked Sun and I Robot both strong classic sci fi But though I find those novels entertaining I don't find them uite as thought provoking as the first three Foundation novels And The Stars Like Dust only his second novel Asimov himself called his least favorite I can't say it's a keeper A clunker really very pulp fiction However I do think Asimov's most amazing works can be found in his short stories not his novels I'd recommend getting a book collecting his shorts His The Ugly Little Boy The Dead Past Nightfall among others are amazing stories

    I love science fiction but I did not love these books For me Asimov's appeal lies in his incredible vision the technological advances he predicts together with the rich history and culture he invents Unfortunately I feel that his characters are terribly weak and exist only as necessary and perhaps unwelcome literary devices that showcase his world His lack of focus on character depth combined with the vast jumps in time between each novel made me lose interest rather uicklyIf you love reading history books and science fiction you might actually love this series But as a literature guy I was disappointed

    Interesting that The Naked Sun is placed here with the Foundation Trilogy and I Robot the latter now familiar to audiences through the Will Smith version The Foundation trilogy is interesting for its allegories about Vietnam and with psycho history a kind of parody on Marxism but for me the Elijah Bailey series of noir detective stories set off world were Asimov's greatest achievements The Naked Sun and The Caves of Steel? magnificent Reminding us that Asimov was also a crime writer and a brilliant compliment to Dick's Blade Runner

    NOTE This review concerns only I Robot not any of the other included books It's been too long since I've read the other ones to consider a review of them I really enjoyed I Robot Mr Asimov has an astonishing talent for making you think and surprising you with the outcomes and reasoning behind them Truly enjoyable books Also if you are coming in to the book expecting it to be anything like the movie of Will Smith fame you are going to be surprised They are almost nothing alike ;

    Asimov is an author of the old school a purist who patiently lays out his plot like a weaver designing his carpet Every detail is integral to the plot which holds together like a golden weaver’s web Asimov like all great minds believes their first priority is to please themselves if the author like his work the audience will follow The book is the end of a series that will keep the most fastidious reader guessing and still be surprised A pioneer in his field Isaac Asimov takes his rightful place as one of SF great minds

    In all fairness I only read I Robot out of curiosity after having seen the Will Smith movie I've had this book probably 15 years and never picked it up until now I'm sure for Asimov the story is excellent it was pretty interesting though the only thing of his works I've read thus far Film completely unlike the book naturally do not bother to compare them The story itself of a chronicling of events than a gripping page turner but still worthy of notice for sci fi fans

    The Foundation Trilogy had to be one of Asimov's best in my opinion As for short stories his I Robot series is very engaging even for those that do not care for science fiction They are in many ways studies in human nature and for those that have seen the movie I Robot; the stories of the series put out by Asimov were not followed AT ALL The movie was completely different except for the stolen title
