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.

Campbell , with whom he developed the concepts of the collapse of the Galactic Empire , the civilization-preserving Foundations, and psychohistory. Foundation trilogy[ edit ] The first four stories were collected, along with a new introductory story, as a fixup published by Gnome Press in as Foundation. The later stories were published in pairs by Gnome as Foundation and Empire and Second Foundation , resulting in the "Foundation Trilogy", as the series is still known.
During the two-year lapse between writing the sequels and prequels, Asimov had tied in his Foundation series with his various other series, creating a single unified universe. The basic link is mentioned in Foundation's Edge: an obscure tradition about a first wave of space settlements with robots and then a second without. In this same book, the word psychohistory is used to describe the nascent idea of Seldon's work.
Some of the drawbacks to this style of colonization, also called Spacer culture, are also exemplified by the events described in The Naked Sun. Asimov's Foundation series novels[ edit ] Note: This plot outline for the seven novels follows the series' in-universe chronology, which is not the order of publication. After many years as a trilogy comprising "Foundation", "Foundation and Empire" and "Second Foundation", the series was expanded by two prequels, and two sequels.
Prelude to Foundation[ edit ] Main article: Prelude to Foundation Prelude to Foundation opens on the planet Trantor , the empire's capital planet, the day after Hari Seldon has given a speech at a mathematics conference.
Several parties become aware of the content of his speech that using mathematical formulas, it may be possible to predict the future course of human history. Seldon is hounded by the Emperor and various employed thugs who are working surreptitiously, which forces him into exile.
Over the course of the book, Seldon and Dors Venabili , a female companion and professor of history, are taken from location to location by Chetter Hummin who, under the guise of a reporter, introduces them to various Trantorian walks of life in his attempts to keep Seldon hidden from the Emperor.
Throughout their adventures all over Trantor, Seldon continuously denies that psychohistory is a realistic science. Even if feasible, it may take several decades to develop.
Hummin, however, is convinced that Seldon knows something, so he continuously presses him to work out a starting point to develop psychohistory. Eventually, after much traveling and introductions to various, diverse cultures on Trantor, Seldon realizes that using the entire known galaxy as a starting point is too overwhelming; he then decides to use Trantor as a model to work out the science, with a goal of later using the applied knowledge on the rest of the galaxy.
Forward the Foundation[ edit ] Main article: Forward the Foundation Eight years after the events of Prelude, Seldon has worked out the science of psychohistory and has applied it on a galactic scale. His notability and fame increase and he is eventually promoted to First Minister to the Emperor.
As the book progresses, Seldon loses those closest to him, including his wife, Dors Venabili, as his own health deteriorates into old age.
Having worked his entire adult life to understand psychohistory, Seldon instructs his granddaughter, Wanda, to set up the Second Foundation.
Main article: Foundation Isaac Asimov novel Called forth to stand trial on Trantor for allegations of treason for foreshadowing the decline of the Galactic Empire , Seldon explains that his science of psychohistory foresees many alternatives, all of which result in the Galactic Empire eventually falling. If humanity follows its current path, the Empire will fall and 30, years of turmoil will overcome humanity before a second Empire arises.
However, an alternative path allows for the intervening years to be only one thousand, if Seldon is allowed to collect the most intelligent minds and create a compendium of all human knowledge, entitled Encyclopedia Galactica. The board is still wary but allows Seldon to assemble whomever he needs, provided he and the "Encyclopedists" be exiled to a remote planet, Terminus.
Seldon agrees to these terms — and also secretly establishes a second Foundation of which almost nothing is known, which he says is at the "opposite end" of the galaxy.
After fifty years on Terminus, and with Seldon now deceased, the inhabitants find themselves in a crisis.
With four powerful planets surrounding their own, the Encyclopedists have no defenses but their own intelligence. At the same time, a vault left by Seldon is due to automatically open. The vault reveals a pre-recorded hologram of Seldon, who informs the Encyclopedists that their entire reason for being on Terminus is a fraud, insofar as Seldon did not actually care whether or not an encyclopedia was created, only that the population was placed on Terminus and the events needed by his calculations were set in motion.
In reality, the recording discloses, Terminus was set up to reduce the dark ages from 30, years to just one millennium, based on following his calculations. It will develop by facing intermittent and extreme "crises" — known as "Seldon Crises" — which the laws governing psychohistory show will inevitably be overcome, simply because human nature will cause events to fall in particular ways which lead to the intended goal.
The recording reveals that the present events are the first such crisis, reminds them that a second foundation was also formed at the "opposite end" of the galaxy, and then falls silent.
His plan is a success; the Foundation remains untouched, and he is promoted to Mayor of Terminus the planet. Meanwhile, the minds of the Foundation continue to develop newer and greater technologies which are smaller and more powerful than the Empire's equivalents.
Using its scientific advantage, Terminus develops trade routes with nearby planets, eventually taking them over when its technology becomes a much-needed commodity. The interplanetary traders effectively become the new diplomats to other planets.
One such trader, Hober Mallow , becomes powerful enough to challenge and win the seat of Mayor and, by cutting off supplies to a nearby region, also succeeds in adding more planets to the Foundation's reach.
Foundation and Empire[ edit ] Main article: Foundation and Empire An ambitious general of the current Emperor of the Galaxy perceives the Foundation as a growing threat and orders an attack on it, using the Empire's still-mighty fleet of war vessels. The Emperor, initially supportive, becomes suspicious of his general's long-term motive for the attack, and recalls the fleet despite being close to victory. In spite of its undoubted inferiority in purely military terms, the Foundation emerges as the victor and the Empire itself is defeated.
Seldon's hologram reappears in the vault on Terminus, and explains to the Foundation that this opening of the vault follows a conflict whose result was inevitable whatever might have been done — a weak Imperial navy could not have attacked them, while a strong navy would have shown itself by its successes to be a direct threat to the Emperor himself and been recalled.
A century later, an unknown outsider called the Mule has begun taking over planets belonging to the Foundation at a rapid pace. The Foundation comes to realize the Mule is a mutant , unforeseen in Seldon's plan, and that the plan cannot have predicted any certainty of defeating him.
