The Foundation Trilogy

Isaac Asimov

Book Overview: 

The Foundation Trilogy is an epic science fiction series written over a span of forty-four years by Isaac Asimov. It consists of seven volumes that are closely linked to each other, although they can be read separately. The premise of the series is that mathematician Hari Seldon spent his life developing a branch of mathematics known as psychohistory, a concept devised by Asimov and his editor John W. Campbell. Using the law of mass action, it can predict the future, but only on a large scale; it is error-prone for anything smaller than a planet or an empire. It works on the principle that the behavior of a mass of people is predictable if the quantity of this mass is very large (equal to the population of the galaxy).

Siempre he sido un fanático de la ciencia ficción. Pero sin embargo hay mucha ciencia ficción de baratillo por ahí, y a menos que realmente te dediques al género, es difícil ir a la librería y comprar algo que no va a ser terriblemente aburrido. Digamos que a veces me han quemado compras terribles d

The Roman Empire Revisited: "The Foundation Trilogy" by Isaac Asimov

SF has to involve some kind of imagining of a different world (even if the difference is so small, that it it is superficially indistinguishable from our world at first gl

Es bueno, pero no es lo que esperaba ni lo que estaba buscando.

Hace un tiempo había querido leer algo de Asimov; el representante de la ciencia ficción. O algo así. No hay razón destacable para explicar por qué escogí este libro para empezar con él, sólo había encontrado dos de sus novelas y ésta me

"La apariencia de fuerza no es más que una ilusión. Parece tener que durar siempre. No obstante, el tronco de árbol podrido, hasta el mismo momento en que la tormenta lo parte en dos, tiene toda la apariencia de sólido que ha tenido siempre. Ahora la tormenta se cierne sobre las ramas del imperio"


In the last days of a future human Galactic Empire spanning countless galaxies, mathematician Hari Seldon develops psychohistory theory using research analysis and statistics of significant numbers of humans across the Empire; it can be used to predict the future of large populations. He foretells t

In my life, there have been three science fiction books/series that will always hold special shelf space in my heart’s library. The first, and the subject of this review, is The Foundation Trilogy by I

*4.5 pra trilogia no geral, mas favoritadíssimaaaa!!!

When Isaac Asimov learned that the World Science Fiction Convention would be giving a special Hugo Award in 1966 for "Best All Time Series," he believed that the category had been created specifically to honor J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy. Indeed, for a modern reader, it's surprising t

Les presento la mejor novela que he leído hasta ahora, una trilogía, en concreto, con la que se inicia el Universo Asimov, una colección de 16 libros de ciencia ficción que desde luego forman parte de los clásicos de la literatura Universal.
Un estilo narrativo excelente, tramas originales e intelige

Volver a leer la trilogía de la Fundación 15 años después y esta vez del tirón (un tirón que me ha llevado 6 meses), me ha permitido entender mejor la idea general que planteó Asimov.
Ahora tengo más experiencia como lector y he visto alguno de los fallos en los que cae (la trilogía entera es un inf
