The Foundation (Citazione da Cronache della Galassia di Isaac Asimov) Alcuni wiki recenti usano un metodo differente. Asimov Preludio Fondazione - [PDF] [EPUB] Asimov Preludio the Foundation – ) Fondazione o Cronache della galassia o Prima.
Asimov gives to his character the role of defining the germ attempt of demonstrating that "studying human society, it is possible to choose a starting point and eliminate chaos through appropriate assump- tions, and therefore it is possible to predict the future, not accurately, by very wide strokes, without absolute certainty, but based on calculated probabilities" The character himself affirms to believe that this was nothing more than a speculative exercise since it would have been necessary to collect a high number of information in order to process them with a unimaginable computing power, despite his demonstration of theoretical possibility: The question is now reportable from a historical perspective and out of the tale to the controversy about economic calculation in the socialist state, which Von Mises studied for a long time trying to prove that it was not possible.
Classical general equilibrium theories does not actually make out so much difference in aspirations and claims compared to Seldon Psychohistory. General economic equilibrium indeed models the initial situation in terms of purposes of the agents which are taken into account, and calculates equilibria to predict how they will behave given that framework: Probably general equilibrium theory gave birth to the the widely spread current of "economic planning". The theory had increased the existing perception of the possibility to manage initial conditions in order to reach a more or less desirable future, depending on the point of view.
Parallels with Asimov scheme are glaring: His student, Friederich Von Hayek, corrected the theory of his master arguing that the calculation was theoretically possible but, as the fictional character Hari Seldon supports, not feasible given the complexity of this calculation.
It seems possible however a further and stimulating particular level of detailed comparison, developed in the following observations. Mortal man does not know how the universe and all that it contains may appear to a superhuman intelligence. Perhaps such an exalted mind is in a position to elaborate a coherent and comprehensive monistic interpretation of all phenomena.
Von Mises starts from the premise that science, at least from a methodological point of view, must adopt a dualistic view. Von Mises methodological dualism is not a metaphysics establishment but a simple admission of the fact that we do not know how physical external events directly condition thoughts and purposes of human beings. From here we must strictly distinguish "the realm of external events, commonly called nature, and the kingdom of thought and human action".
Von Mises claims at this point that human beings act intentionally in view of the chosen end in any circumstance, they act to found themselves in a situation which at that time is the most satisfying, otherwise acting would be useless and no one would ever choose to change is status. The necessity of Methodological dualism is therefore according to Von Mises clear: Asimov manifests his consciousness of this limit through the narration of Hari Seldon conversation with the Emperor during which the former suggests to the latter: We are dealing with huge amounts of these particles, and each moves or vibrates in a random and unpredictable manner, however, this chaos has a basic order, so here we can develop a quantum mechanics that responds to all the questions that we can formulate.
Studying society, we put humans in the place of subatomic particles, but in that case the additional factor of the human mind takes over" Asimov then demonstrates to be acquainted with the fact that the "prevision" in the field of physics is in a certain sense more viable than it is in the field of social sciences; furthermore the distinction he accomplish do not differ substantially from that of Von Mises.
After determining that the first reason why a man act is reaching an end he has determined Von Mises develops his observations.
To the Austrian it is confusing to evaluate this dynamic in the same way we could evaluate the fall of a mass, but it is also clear that Praxeology can only be limited to study how the predetermined end is reached. Praxeology is, in this sense, the study of the means and not of the end.
Von mises supports his position by stating that the way through the man predetermines his purpose can not be the subject of any science that has a claim of precision, because such a process, which takes place within the mind of a single man, will never be analyzed and deeply understood by other men. According to Von Mises in fact it can be established that a certain mean to achieve a purpose is wrong while the purpose itself can not be decreed right or wrong. The first of the two processes is a "Technical judgment", while the second is a "Value judgment": If in Praxeology and economics the impossibility to determine and manipulating directly people "Value judgment" is a major limit, in Psychohistory there is an imaginary overcome of this problem.
Hari Seldon realizes that his adopted son and her granddaughter are gifted with such a capacity and assumes that there are other people who can identify "Value Judgments" of human beings. Asimov gives an explanation more or less likely to happen regarding this extraordinary power. During the narration it is exposed that such a "sense" was innate in every men in the dawn of time but after word and verbal language development human potential in catching what other think atrophies but it is still preserved as a unexpressed ability.
Second Foundation members recovered this lost ability and communicate in fact among themselves not through natural language but perceiving what every speaker want actually transmits without the intermediation of an elaborated language. Studies on our brain potentials are considered from the major experts in the field at a primigenial status, despite progresses which succeeded in the last few decades; a lapidary and effective quotation regarding the possible and unimaginable future development of these frontier of scientific exploration may be the one expressed by Marcel Dust, D.
If the "First Foundation" was populated by holders of natural sciences knowledge, the "Second Foun- dation" was created only by people featured with such extraordinary power. The location of the planet intended to host the First Foundation was supposed to be known to the rest 14 This quotation is taken by the film "Lo and behold "  by Werner Herzog. Second Foundation would have instead worked in incognito and would have been the real holder of the responsibility of "Seldon project", namely the shortening of the centuries of anarchy tentative.
Going forward in the story it is discovered that the Second Foundation has always worked in secret by changing the behavior of some humans to order the course of history as Seldon had conjectured. We can then hazard a parallelism: In this sense we can say that a schedule rather than a forecast was actually hypothesized and imple- mented, assumed that members of the Second Foundation were able to "affect" people "preferences": I will start by recalling some observations of Von Mises regardind to history and philosophy of history.
The Austrian determined the distinction between social and natural world and differentiated among human judgments between "Value" and "Technical" judgments establishing in this way his epistemo- logical assumptions and justifying his adoption of a dual method. Von Mises then proceed his studying criticizing the collectivist and organicist approach in philosophy of history.
The creator of Praxeology, indeed, considers assigning to groups of individuals outcomes that must be necessarily linked exclusively to a single agent methodologically wrong and misleading in results.
For this reason Von Mises states that every historian should start from the assumption that " According to Von Mises "civilizations" are exclusively the product of a multiplicity of actions done by individuals and born from their preferences, it is with this perspective that historians must interpret historical facts, not by considering collective entities as being endowed with the ability to act.
The historian must therefore find out which were the "Value judgments" of people who acted and whose actions led to a particular movement of history in one direction rather than in another.
Von Mises stresses therefore that ".. In the dialogue between Hari Seldon and the Emperor, which I mentioned, we have found a passage in which the impossibility to make a prediction in social sciences is discussed.
Asimov was able to go round this impossibility by introducing an actually plausible condition which existence could make possible to achieve satisfactory results: Asimov concludes through the character of Hari Seldon that with an enormously large population actions and behaviors "distant" from those of the average of individuals are negligible, therefore macroscopic and collective trends can be observed with an inexistent error margin.
This conclusion goes clearly into collision with Von Mises methodological individualism, who argued that this kind of approaches had no justification and led to results of dubious reliability. Inside the novel context such a condition was obviously not out of the ordinary. Lucky Starr e gli oceani di Venere.

Cronologia del futuro lontano
Keeping Posted. I vari episodi non sono molto interessanti, e le pagine si susseguono per inerzia del lettore fino alla fine. Si salvano solamente i personaggi principali, caratterizzati in modo apprezzabile.
Due racconti lunghi: La prima parte si trascina stancamente, senza avere molto da dire. Nella seconda invece, la trama ingrana ed il ritmo cresce di conseguenza, lasciando alcuni punti in sospeso che verranno, credo, risolti nell'ultimo romanzo della Fondazione Fondazione e Terra. Nota negativa: Ci sono alcuni aspetti dei romanzi che risultano molto buoni, considerando che sono stati scritti oltre mezzo secolo fa: Siamo distanti anni luce dai fasti del Ciclo dei Robot, a mio umile parere la cosa migliore che Asimov abbia scritto, oppure da altri suoi romanzi che sono invecchiati meglio.
Feb 17, Eric rated it it was amazing Shelves: Tutto nasce qui. Asimov ha ideato la sua fantascienza, e il mondo lo ha seguito come se fosse il solco per il futuro. Dalle eroine improbabili alle battaglie spaziali, dall'ampio respiro del viaggio interstellare alla quotidi Tutto nasce qui. Eh ragazzi io su Asimov non sono imparziale.
Emozionante, ti tiene col fiato sospeso.
Manuale del pensiero strategico. Fedele alla propria creazione psicostorica, Asimov mostra tanto interesse e tanta cura nel lavorare sulle masse e attraverso i secoli quanto si dimostra frettoloso e pigro nel plasmare i singoli personaggi, tutti maschi bianchi caucasici etero cis dall'intelligenza brillante e dal temperamento indomito i perfetti self-made man americani insomma , eredi di una lunga serie di eroi tali e quali a loro, che spiccano per contrasto nella massa di coglionazzi senza speranza che li circondano e che risolvono crisi interplanetarie prendendosi il potere con la forza al momento giusto, ovviamente in nome di un bene superiore.
Anche quando si parla di personaggi relativamente importanti, lo sforzo di Asimov per diversificarle dallo stereotipo genera nelle migliore delle ipotesi una discriminazione positiva: Non ho dubbi nel definire questo Ciclo delle Fondazioni il capolavoro di Asimov! Il Ciclo delle Fondazioni raccoglie la bellezza di quattro romanzi: I primi tre formano la cosiddetta Trilogia della Fondazione, scritti esattamente nel , e Da questa caotica situazione emerge una nuova temibilissima forza: Da dove viene?
Dove si nasconde? Asimov, con questo stratagemma, riesce a ideare una scienza che prevede il futuro e, in parte, lo condiziona. Apr 30, Lisa Harmonybites rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Science Fiction. 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. Only this empire spans the galaxy.
Hari Seldon predicts through "psychohistory" the empire will fall within years and establishes a foundation to manipulate history to shorten the dark ages that will follow. The fascination is seeing how all that 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.
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.
Cronache Della Galassia
The first three books in the series were written in the early s, 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 sequels and prequels, 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 quite as thought-provoking as the first three Foundation novels.
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. Hober Mallow? Hari Seldon? Salvor Hardin? Sono loro i protagonisti indiscussi dei libri? Il protagonista sono la Prima Fondazione e successivamente la Seconda Fondazione Irritante come minimo. Credo che sia stata una scelta di Asimov per sottolineare una dei 2 assiami della Psicostoria: In questa ottica, la narrazione ha fatto centro ma a costo di sacrificare l'empatia verso i personaggi che da Soggetti diventano Pedine del sempre presente Seldon.
Non so Un paio di cose che non avevo notato nella prima lettura: In conclusione: Assolutamente incredibile come ad uno scrittore nel gli sia venuto in mente un mondo, anzi universo galattico di queste proporzioni, non posso che definirlo: Continuo con gli altri 2: Nov 05, Tyler rated it it was ok. I love science fiction, but I did not love these books.
For me, Asimov's appeal lies in his incredible vision: 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 quickly. If you I love science fiction, but I did not love these books. If you love reading history books and science fiction, you might actually love this series.
But as a literature guy, I was disappointed. A differenza della maggior parte dei romanzi che abbia mai letto questo ciclo ha come personaggio principale il tempo, dato che esso copre diversi secoli di storia. Infatti ci si sposta continuamente di pianeta in pianeta. Un must per chiunque ami la letteratura fantascientifica.
Il libro contiene tutti i primi quattro romanzi Cronache della Galassia - Prima Fondazione, Il crollo della galassia centrale - Fondazione e Impero, l'altra faccia della spirale - Seconda Fondazione, l'orlo della fondazione. Va assolutamente letto per immergersi nelle geniale idee ed intuizioni di Asimov:Asimov describes the axioms of Psychohistory, the context within his forecasting can work, its methods and the way Hari Seldon conceived it. Rimangono solo i procarioti.
Asimov ha ideato la sua fantascienza, e il mondo lo ha seguito come se fosse il solco per il futuro. Boerst, W. Le storie e il mondo sono affascinanti. Mar 19, Jake rated it really liked it.

Come conseguenza, il movimento dei poli terrestri diventa caotico. In a context in which the planet of Foundation is strong thanks to Hari Seldon forecasts - which stated that that the planet and his function would have always been flourishing - the Mule becomes his first conqueror against all prognostics.
