    The original Foundation series was more about "psychohistory" (ie, a "soft" science treated as a "hard" science, according to the definitions provided earlier in this thread), and the whole series came as close to Heinlein's future history/shared universe treatments of mass/mob psychology, but without the latter's interest in sexual and cultural shifts, as Asimov was ever likely to get.

    Yes, Asimov coined the term, robotics, and was the first to set out the Three Laws of Robotics, and then enjoyed many years of finding ways to get around or simply break them.
