I, Robot


Genre: Science Fiction

Author: Isaac Asimov

Publication date: December 2, 1950

Publisher: Gnome Press



American author born in Russia Isaac Asimov, especially is famous by science fiction writings. He has a lot of literary works, translated to Turkish and when the topic is robots, he is one of the first names that pops in anyone’s mind. If you search on the subject, I can say that, almost in every work you see the references to the famous three laws of robotics of his. Asimov also added a fourth, or a zeroth law, to precede the others. These laws are:

  • 0 – A robot may not harm humanity, or, by inaction, allow humanity to come to harm.
  • 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 the orders given 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 Laws. (Asimov, Isaac (1950). I, Robot.)

Actually, there are so many things to say about Asimov, the perspective he brought to our attention regarding to robots, shows what a great author he is. “I, Robot”, published in English and translated to Turkish as “Ben, Robot”, contains fluent, fascinating science fiction tales. This work can change your perspective about the relationship between the humans and the robots.

I advise this book to everyone, interested in robotics.
