The life of the 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.

But only Hari Seldon, creator of the revolutionary science of psychohistory, can see into the future -- to a dark age of ignorance, barbarism, and warfare that will last thirty thousand years. To preserve knowledge and save mankind, Seldon gathers the best minds in the Empire -- both scientis For twelve thousand years the Galactic Empire has ruled supreme.

Sep 29, Christy rated it it was ok Shelves: readinglist2-sf , science-fiction-and-fantasy. 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 all , but 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 room 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. Plus, there are no female characters to speak of. One man's wife makes a brief and 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 97 comments. A great story, told in a terribly boring fashion. One-dimensional characters engaged in various trade negotiations, political upheavals and general planning.

Dry beyond belief. The concepts are engaging—religion as a means of control, psychohistory—but the telling of the story leaves much to be desired. There is a great story between the lines here; one that I think would work much, much better as a television series.

Don't even get m A great story, told in a terribly boring fashion. Don't even get me started about the lone female character. One scene only, she has no dialogue then gets distracted by the shininess of a necklace. Jesus, Asimov. View all 22 comments.

The scope of this is just hugely imaginative. 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 the 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 his 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 the development of a nation, of an empire, across the centuries.

I found it hard to fully invest in it because of this.
