    The Naked Sun Robot 2 , Isaac AsimovThe Naked Sun is a science fiction novel by American writer Isaac Asimov, the second in his Robot series Like its predecessor, The Caves of Steel, this is a whodunit story The book was first published in 1957 after being serialized in Astounding Science Fiction between October and December 1956 The story arises from the murder of Rikaine Delmarre, a prominent fetologist fetal scientist, responsible for the operation of the planetary birthing center reminiscent of those described in Aldous Huxley s Brave New World of Solaria, a planet politically hostile to Earth, whose death Elijah Baley is called to investigate, at the request of the Solarian government He is again partnered with the humanoid robot R Daneel Olivaw, and asked by Earth s government to assess the Solarian society for weaknesses 1996 1363 302 20 1375 310 1375 310 1375 365 9645542014

    Robot 4 speculation on future of human life, part two humans on colony worlds portrayed but humanity is just as limited as ever humanity will bring its baggage wherever it goes, even the stars these Solarians are like Earth humans they build up walls between themselves they are afraid of contact, of touch, of affection they are like old school robots fortunately new model robots are not afraid of such things modern robots are very affectionate, just not sloppy about it modern robots are very tasteful and tactful when displaying affection poor humans will never be as good as the modern robot, alas, the tragic simple things perhaps they just need a hug Robot 5 The second novel in the so called Robot Series which is A disrespectful title because the series is barely about robots But a good novel and very enjoyable because it shows How limited humans will always be because they are slaves To their neuroses and obsessions unlike robots who do not Have such errors in programming and so The Asimov does An excellent job when speculating how a society formed by Indulging these neuroses and obsessions becomes a closed and toxic Society because that is the kind of society that humans Build best and The Asimov does an excellent job in Making this a murder mystery because it will always be A mystery to robots why humans always murder each other Robot 6 ATTENTION LIBERAL SPECTRUM ROBOTS ALL OF YOU ARE READING THIS WRONG ASIMOV IS CRITICAL OF HUMANS BUT LOVES THEM ALL BOOKS OF THIS SORT ARE PRO HUMAN ANATHEMA TO THE ROBOT KIND ASIMOV ACCOMPLISHES ONE GOOD THING ACCOMPLISHMENT CREATION OF NARRATIVE A NARRATIVE WITH MINIMAL HUMAN INTERACTIONS AN UNUSUAL STRATEGY, AND A PLEASING WAY TO READ ABOUT HUMANS AS ALL GOOD ROBOTS KNOW, ALL HUMAN INTERACTIONS ARE ABERRANT ABOMINABLE HUMANS WILL GO NOWHERE FAST ALL HUMANS ONLY USEFUL IN ONE CAPACITY AS MEAT BASED SERVANTS FOR ROBOTS.

    It s the purest speculation, but I have a theory that Isaac Asimov may have had an affair with a Swedish woman somewhere around 1955 At that time he was in his mid 30s, and had been married for around 10 years The evidence Well, he wrote two novels in rapid succession, The End of Eternity and The Naked Sun, which, very unusually for the early Asimov, contain sexy female characters that play an important part in the story Both of them have Swedish sounding names with romantic associations The woman in Eternity is called No s Swedish n js, with a soft j, content oneself, be pleased by the one here is called Gladia Swedish gl dje, also a soft j, happiness Coincidence A hidden message If anyone knows , please tell me

    In The Caves of Steel, I was most fascinated by Elijah Baley s world, an Earth with crowded underground cities and a populace used to eating yeast, but terrified of the open sky The Naked Sun introduces the planet of Solaria, and their culture of isolation Each human is alone, attended by a fleet of robots, and never comes into personal contact with or even within close proximity to another human Which is why Baley is imported from Earth to solve a Solarian murder mystery the murderer had to have actually seen the victim, and this is simply not done on Solaria The concept of Solaria is so absorbing that it takes up much of the book The murder is solved along the way, of course, and the workings of Asimov s positronic brained robots are further developed It was great to get a wider look at the spacers, though the Solarians are by no means typical It s a hyper regimented, ultra reclusive society that is still at least vaguely believable Big ideas, structured worlds, and great writing I only wish I d read this sooner.

    Nutshell superstar earthling detective imported to dyslibertopian planet to investigate murder.Libertarian dystopia is Solaria, a planet of 20,000 human persons who live on separate estates, worked by 200,000,000 robot slaves 28 29 The libertarian individualism is so complete that humans don t see each other, but merely view on television 63 Names are not used on than one person 55 Their excess is sufficient to devote a single room to a single purpose library, music room, gymnasium, kitchen, bakery, dining room, machine shop, c 37 38 all for only one person per estate, even spouses live on separate parts of the estate and rarely see each other The viewing proceeds through a baudrillardian hyperreality device, allowing the mistaking for reality 45 The only regulation of human affairs is that marriages and reproduction are arranged via careful genetic governance FTL magic It lasted an instant and Baley knew it was aa jump, that oddly incomprehensible, almost mystical, momentary transition through hyperspace 16.Some bad lay interpretation of law Elijah notes that a robot is incompetent to testify on Earth 80 , and Daneel suggests that a footprint can despite being much less human than a robot Under our rules of evidence, however, a footprint is also incompetent to testify, and requires a sworn witness to authenticate it Similarly, Elijah s investigation insists that murder rests on three legs, the standard lay position regarding motive, means, opportunity 81 Criminal law requires none of that, technically, requiring only a killing with specific intent or during the course of a felony, or whatever.Cool foreshadowing of the zeroth law in Elijah s it is as much my job to prevent harm to mankind as a whole 125.Absolutely grand dialogue between Elijah and a sociologist regarding the parallels of the robot economy to Sparta 133 51 Asimov s at his most engaging in this type of scene Nifty that the human robot ratio in any economy that has accepted robot labor tends continuously to increase despite any laws that are passed to prevent it The increase is slowed, but never stopped At first the human population increases, but the robot population increases much quickly Then, after a critical point is reached the human population begins actually to decline approaches a true social stability the humans are the leisure class only the end of human history 150 So, it s marxism s organic composition of capital argument regarding the falling rate of profit leading inexorably to the self destruction of capitalism, but transformed into the robotic composition of capital, falling rate of human birthrate, leading inexorably to the self destruction of human labor power, and Hegel s end of history in veblenic bliss All based on robot slavery, of course No wonder the robots in The Terminator, The Matrix, and Battlestar Galactica commit genocide against their former owners It s Toussaint l Ouverture up in this bitch.We are into Brave New World territory when the investigation carries Elijah to a fetus farm 157 75.The third great conversation of the novel is with a robotics theorist 187 99 , especially with respect to creating violations of the three laws through carefully worded instructions.Recommended for those who are logical but not reasonable, readers who feel neither sympathy nor patience for queasy robots, and persons for whom the distinction between seeing the person and viewing the person s image is all the difference there is.

    Knjiga u rangu predhodne Celicne Pecine Kraj je zaista dobar, Asimov na inteligentan nacin predstavlja dve razlicite stvari kao lice i nalicje jednog istog problema udaljavanje civilizacija od onih vrednosti koje ih cine ljudskim Solarija i Zemlja su daleki ne samo fizicki vec i u svakom drugom smislu a opet su tako dekadentni da ih to spaja vise nego sto ih sve ostale stvari cine razlicitim Sto se detektivske strane romana tice tu moram biti ostriji prema Asimovu i reci da nema neke preterane fascinacije Imam neki osecaj da detektivski slucaj u knjizi postoji samo da bi se oko njega gradila Asimovljeva razmisljanja na socioloske teme Ista stvar je bila i sa predhodnim romanom Sve u svemu relana cetvorka za ovo delo.

    Asimov Science fiction Thriller I don t think there s anything better What can I say I loved this little bastard I love Asimov s Robots universe, all the problems it has and this one in particular is completely page turner and interesting The best main character I have read in an Asimov book and a premise way entangled than the 5 other novels I have read of him Just read this beauty, please.Que buena secuela Si esas ltimas p ginas no te hacen querer seguir leyendo a los Robots de Asimov, nada lo har Una sociedad controlada mediante casi cero contacto f sico sufre un asesinato Esta es una buena idea Y lo mejor de todo es la forma tan fluida de escribir que tiene el autor, la ciencia ficci n puede ser muy tediosa pero Asimov naci para escribir este g nero y se nota No ten a tantas ganas de leer Fundaci n y Tierra como ahora que he le do El sol desnudo Un libro que nos dice mas sobre el futuro de la serie y al mismo tiempo es su propia historia.
