La «Trilogía de la Fundación» está considerada la mejor serie de la ciencia ficción universal. Como tal, fue galardonada en 1966 con un premio Hugo, y ahora reunida en un único volumen: una lectura imprescindible para los amantes del género.

El hombre se ha dispersado por toda la galaxia. La capital del Imperio es Trántor, nido de intrigas y corrupción. Gracias a su ciencia, fundada en el estudio matemático de los hechos históricos y el comportamiento de las masas, el psicohistoriador Hari Seldon prevé la caída del Imperio y el retorno a la barbarie durante varios milenios. A fin de reducir este período de barbarie a mil años, Seldon decide crear una Fundación en un extremo de la galaxia.

El poderío de la Fundación alcanza límites insospechados, su dominio se sostiene en la energía, la religión y el comercio. Sin embargo, la aparición del Mulo, un individuo dotado de poderes paranormales, desafía todas las previsiones. Conquistando planeta tras planeta, le gana terreno a la Fundación de manera vertiginosa. La salvación de la galaxia queda en manos de una Segunda Fundación totalmente secreta y cuyo emplazamiento es desconocido incluso para los dirigentes de la Primera.

Reseña:
«Cualquier aportación a la interminable controversia sobre el futuro debería mostrarse agradecida, en primer lugar, a Isaac Asimov.»

This classic science fiction masterwork by Isaac Asimov weaves stories about robots, humanity, and the deep questions of existence into a novel of shocking intelligence and heart.
 
“A must-read for science-fiction buffs and literature enjoyers alike.”—The Guardian

I, Robot, the first and most widely read book in Asimov’s Robot series, forever changed the world’s perception of artificial intelligence. Here are stories of robots gone mad, of mind-reading robots, and robots with a sense of humor. Of robot politicians, and robots who secretly run the world—all told with the dramatic blend of science fact and science fiction that has become Asimov’s trademark. 

The Three Laws of Robotics:
1) A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2) A robot must obey orders given to it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3) A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

With these three, simple directives, Isaac Asimov formulated the laws governing robots’ behavior. In I, Robot, Asimov chronicles the development of the robot from its primitive origins in the present to its ultimate perfection in the not-so-distant future—a  future in which humanity itself may be rendered obsolete.

“Tremendously exciting and entertaining . . . Asimov dramatizes an interesting question: How can we live with machines that, generation by generation, grow more intelligent than their creators and not eventually clash with our own invention?”—The Chicago Tribune
