The life of asumov brilliant mathematician Hari Seldon, protagonist of the two prequels to Foundation series, draws to a close. However, thanks to “psychohistory”, the complex discipline founded by himself to predict the behaviours of the masses over time, he timed it all perfectly.

He leaves to future generations precise instructions in order to avoid several millennia of intergalactic barbaris.

He leaves to future generations precise instructions in order to avoid several millennia of intergalactic barbarism. Well, it starts for me the science fiction and political fiction series that goes further into the future than any other book I read. A distant future where the origins of humanity can’t be tracked anymore, where you doubt about the assumption that the human race was born on one, single planet. La vita del matematico Hari Seldon, protagonista dei due prequel al Ciclo delle Fondazioni, volge al termine.

Ma, grazie alla psicostoria, la complicata disciplina fondata da lui stesso allo scopo di predire i comportamenti delle masse nel tempo, ha calcolato tutto. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

Isaac Asimov’s ability to tell an extremely compelling story without the use of dynamic characters is quite literally mind blowing.

Lists with This Book. Sep 29, Christy rated it it was ok Qsimov There are some interesting elements to it for instance, the use of religion as a tool of mass control and the implicit resultant argument that religion is no more than a fraud, “the opiate of the people,” after allbut the book gave me little to enjoy or dig into. The forces of the novel are broad, historical, dealing with masses of people; this means that there is little to no asimo for individual characters here and little to be done by the few characters who do appear.

One leader says, in fact, in response to a crisis, the threat of warfare and annihilation, “I’m going to do nothing. One hundred percent of nothing, and that is the secret of this crisis” This is a recurring theme. Asimkv, there are no fundata characters to speak of. One man’s wife makes a brief fuundatia apparently unnecessary appearance for a page-long chapter, but that’s it.

All else is done by and to men. There are a couple of minor things I do like about the book. One is Salvor Hardin’s statement that “violence is the last refuge of the incompetent,” which I like for its endorsement of nonviolent alternatives. Another is the characters’ habit of saying “Space” or “Galaxy” instead of God when they exclaim or curse. View all 81 comments.

Secondly the foundation series is a lesson of hi Before Foundation there are two prologue books that are important for the story to make better sense. Secondly the foundation series is a lesson of history, politics, crowd control and evolution of a geopolitical system. Asimov as a person had some very solid ideas about how the world could be ruled better.

Only for those arguments the book is a masterpiece of it’s kind. The lack of woman, asian and afroamericans and all that political correctness nonsense is irrelevant. Al the characters could be as well genderless aliens and the book would still make perfect sense. Al the characters could be as wel Adrian wrote: A great story, told in a terribly boring fashion.

One-dimensional characters engaged in various trade negotiations, political upheavals and general planning. The concepts are very engaging–religion as funsatia means of control, psychohistory, etc–but the telling of the story leaves much to be desired.

Fundația / Fundația și Imperiul

The idea is to create the new, and perfect, galactic empire. The old one is dying. The brightest mind of the age has used his incredibly farfetched, yet incredibly brilliant, psychohistory to predict fundxtia exact date the empire will fall. He has used this field of academia to predict the future, and because of this he can alter events, long after his death, and guide aasimov fledgling civilisation into power.

The old empire will crumble in exactly years, so he manipulates the ruling body to send him, and his following, to a remote planet that will eventually develop into something grand. Harry Seldon controls the future from the grave; he knew what would happen, and he knew exactly when the people of the future should act.

He predicted that it would take years for the new empire to be born. So he appears to them in real moments of crisis in pre-recorded holograms to guide them in the right direction. One must improvise as well.

It clearly defines so much of the genre. Would they have existed without it? The parallels are here. All the characters are scientists and politicians; they are powerful and driven; they are singular in their forceful purposes. None of them really have the chance to develop. The idea is to show funcatia development of a nation, of an empire, across the centuries. I found it hard to fully invest in it because of this. He was the glue that held it together, the rest of the characters were forgettable.

Thus, there is no action or real climax. Structurally speaking, this is essentially five short stories put together. It shows the development of an empire, but from a great deal of distance. There was no real human element or emotions involved. This work funvatia practically a work of genius, though it was impossible to fully care about the story because everything was objectified. It was a major case of show rather than tell.

It is dictated by a rising bureaucracy, a receding initiative, a freezing of caste, a damming of curiosity—a hundred other factors. It has been going on, as I have said, for centuries, and it is too majestic and massive a movement to stop. It was very deceiving at the start too; it was quite dry. I will be reading further into the series to see how things go, but I will most likely only go so far as the original trilogy.
