Foundation tells the story of four groups of historians, scientists, and archivists attempting to maintain a record of human knowledge as their far-future galactic society regresses. The novel spans more than a century and charts the successes and failures of the groups as they echo out through human history. It forms a set of parables about the nature of knowledge, the trends inherent in human society, and the difficulty of cultivating a love for knowledge in a civilization.
