Foundation | Isaac Asimov
For twelve thousand years the Galactic Empire has ruled supreme. Now it is dying. But only Hari Sheldon, 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 scientists and scholars--and brings them to a bleak planet at the edge of the Galaxy to serve as a beacon of hope for a fututre generations. He calls his sanctuary the Foundation.But soon the fledgling Foundation finds itself at the mercy of corrupt warlords rising in the wake of the receding Empire. Mankind's last best hope is faced with an agonizing choice: submit to the barbarians and be overrun--or fight them and be destroyed.

My son is really into sci-fi and is reading all the classics. So I decided to read a few myself. This book wasn‘t what I expected. At first I didn‘t like it, but as it progressed I started to enjoy it more and now, I keeps thinking about it. So I am giving it a thumbs up.

Our episode on Asimov's Foundation is finally out! We discuss the Sci-Fi classic and its impact on the genre, whether or not we liked it (yes, it was very entertaining), the possibility of using psychohistory to predict real-world events, and we try to figure out what “vegan tobacco“ is. Enjoy!

I listened to this for two reasons:

1. It‘s a #1001Books selection, and
2. I kinda want to watch the show, and have that read-first rule.

I did like the basic premise—a great, advanced society receding into a dark age after the fall of an empire, and a forward-thinking plan to lessen the length of that dark age—the time jumps and one-dimensional characters made it hard to engage… maybe I will watch, but I won‘t continue the books.

While it‘s super dated (are there actually any women in the future?), I‘m enjoying the first Foundation book more than I figured I would.

But this is literally all I think if every time Prince Regent Wienis is mentioned. 😂

Ruthiella I read the first three books and there are only two women in the future as posited by Asimov. 😂 Also, the amount of tobacco smoking is amazing! Even when I was a pack a day smoker, I assumed the future would be nicotine free. 5mo
Reggie @Ruthiella @Centique today I read an article where New Zealand is taking steps to stop tobacco sales of younger generations until no one smokes. 5mo

This was not as good as I expected it to be, it was long-winded and boring for me personally.

The characters are dull and boring characters because the author doesn't spend much time developing them and that's what kills it for me; I like good, memorable characters.

I'm aware I'm in the minority here, the majority rate it highly but I find it dated.

vlwelser So dated. 7mo

Started the Foundation trilogy and I found it helped to learn it was initially a set of short stories and that Asimov wrote these to make some money when he was only 21 (!!). Asimov imagines what it would have been like for the fall of the Roman Empire to have been predicted, what would people have done.

I may like the idea of this book more than the reality of it. My teenage self set my Goodreads URL to /psychohistory, as I was fascinated by that fictional branch of mathematics which sets these stories in motion. On this reread, Asimov‘s predicted decline of the galactic empire by stagnation of investment in science felt more possible than ever, yet for every spark of my interest there was an equally deep waning as we skipped across time.

tenar This is unfortunate, as I consider myself a minor Asimov fan, and the Foundation series is my brother‘s absolute favorite! As my difficulty seems to be with execution rather than the ideas, I find myself looking forward to the upcoming TV adaptation! 8mo

Hari Seldom,a psychohistorian whose job is to predict the future of the galaxy,predicts the fall of the Empire and manipulates the government into send him and other scientists to an empty planet in the periphery.There stablishes a colony of scientists, the Foundation, mapping up the next centuries with the aim of getting the Foundation as the new ruler.An interesting read,but it feels like is setting the pieces for a bigger story that's to come

It was good to read this again, though it is hopelessly androcentric, with the single named female character being a '50s stereotype and nought but a cipher, but that quibble aside, it's an interesting future history that was, and is, a satirical commentary on contemporary society. Many of Asimov's ideas having become genre tropes & entered the mainstream through media such as (particularly) Star Wars is a testament to the strength of his vision.

Day 19: Foundation/Robots/Empire
Three great series telling the stories of one magnificent universe. I‘ve probably rearranged these books on my shelves more than anything else I own. Partly because I‘ve had most of them longer, but also because I never can quite decide whether to shelve them in publication or chronological order much less whether to separate them or merge them as one great mega-series.

This was interesting but also disappointing in that it continually left me expecting more. I never minded reading it and was intrigued by the details of each section. Yet, each short episode of history never provided enough depth of world building or character development. The abrupt ending felt unsatisfying without making me feel any real need to know how the society would move forward next.

Man, I really love classic sci-fi. The interconnected short stories tell the fall of a stagnant galactic empire and the rise of Foundation, a small world which uses its science, religion, and traders to navigate relationships with it‘s more dangerous neighbors. Asimov can eerily predict ideas and societal movements. This one truly deserves its place as one of the cornerstones of science fiction.

Foundation is a well readable story, but it is not the big deal it is cracked up to be. There are interesting themes: civilizations fall when scientific curiosity stalls, when authoritariasm wins. Religion, technology and trade are examined as means of political power. However, the writing is mediocre, the story is a series of shorts, there is zero character development, and zero women. The science is stuck in 1951. Disappointing. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I‘m so glad you finally read it! And more importantly are back to reading and to Litsy!!! I agree, I was disappointed. I actually enjoyed Dune more. 3y
Gezemice @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Thanks! I actually quite enjoyed it for what it was, but waaay too simple to consider a great achievement of any sort. I am sort of semi back - post occasionally. I think this did bring me back to read print, though! I am going to read the next one as it kinda cuts off mid stream. We have 1000 years, right? We only get 150. And yes, Dune was way better - Dune lived up to its reputation. It was epic! 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Gezemice I know, the first 3 were written as a trilogy...so I‘m thinking I‘ll probably eventually read those three. Not sure I‘m interested in the later follow ups or prequels though. 3y
Gezemice @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Good point, it is supposed to be a trilogy. I liked Dune very much but was not interested in the sequel - the story is perfectly wrapped up. This one needs the sequel. (edited) 3y

What an odd little book...halfway through I thought it‘s a great encapsulation of the cycles human civilization seems destined to pass through & I can see why it was popular, BUT I‘m not sure if I want to read the sequels. However the end leaves you mid-story and the idea that it‘s almost impossible to overcome the inertia of society without lots of people or time is a bit chilling since it rings true and our inertia is so bad at the moment.

I‘m not sure if this would be a pick if I hadn‘t read the two books in the series that occur before Foundation (which were written much later). There are basically five different stories that take place in the same “world” and there‘s not enough time spent with the characters for me to be really drawn in. I‘ll have to see how this book fits into Asimov‘s scheme.

I know that all SFF writers write from their own situation in time and place, but they speculate on social structures as well as technology. And it's a bit disappointing to see that tens of thousands of years from now humanity has a social structure where men work and women are simply classified as wives. (And they're not using the metric system either!)

tealwish I am reading Asimov for the first time now and thinking the same thing. He is an imaginative author who speculates on the giant leaps of technology in the future but can't see a world where men and women are equal or where social norms evolve at all. 3y

The Empire is failing and a leading psycho historian knows the galaxy will fall into millennia of brutality and dark ages - so he sets up a scientific community (the Foundation) on the perimeter of human exploration to become the seeds for a new enlightened empire. This book is told in sections - each section a new epoch after the end of Empire - each with new characters facing a new crisis foretold by their progenitor ⬇️

Centique It‘s almost entirely about politics and tactics - a sci fi application of The Art of War perhaps! - a lot more talking than action, but I loved it! You‘re always at a point of tension in their history and there‘s always subterfuge at play. It lit my brain up and sparked lots of ideas. Very readable whereas I was expecting a dry classic. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3y

I say pick but mostly out of respect for Asimov and his legacy. The story was good, even if made almost entirely out of dialogue. In the entire book, however, there was one female character, and she was kind of a bitch. So... Yay cool story. But it's quite obvious this was written before women were seen as intellectual equals.

speljamr I do hope they do it justice in the planned TV series. Maybe they can update those outdated concepts to match today. But I cringe sometimes when I read stuff in older sci-fi books. 3y
AthenaWins @speljamr I'm excited for a series. I'm hoping a few of the characters can undergo some serious updating, even gender swapping. Otherwise I'm not watching. Lol. The story itself is interesting, and I I love what the underlying message is. It is certainly a product of its times. 3y

I know that this book was first published in 1951, and I have to look at it through the messed-up backward lens of time, but I don‘t have an interest in a world set 40,000 years in the future where the women are still the unnamed secretaries to the men who are running the universe.

Here are some of my thoughts on this.
Liked it. The narrative has many timeskips. Each generation of "The Foundation" faces diffe
rent crisis and each generation handles it differently. From pseudo religion to trade control. Definitely reading the next one.
