Heinlein’in henüz Heinlein olmadığı zamanlarda yazdığı, ilk dönem eserlerinden...

Heinlein, bu romanında bir insanın beyninin tamamını kontrol edebilmesi sonucunda neler yapabileceğini kurgulamış. Öyküde, bahsi geçen yeteneklere sahip insanlar zamanla azalmış ve yok olmuşlardır. İşte Heinlein bu yetenekleri “kaybolan miras” olarak adlandırıyor ve kitabın ikinci yarısında ise bunların tekrar keşfedilebilmesi için uğraşıyor. Karakterlerin altı tam olarak doldurulmadığı için, bu da yine kitapta hav

Early in his life, Heinlein was very interested in para-psychological phenomena, and even went to the extent of running (not carefully controlled) experiments attempting to validate the existence of such phenomena.

Kitaba başladığımda ilk bölümün konusundan ötürü oldukça ilgimi çekmişti. Bir beyin cerrahı ve psikiyatristin beynin işlevleri hakkında bilimsel sohbetleri ile başlıyordu.

Daha da ilerledikçe bir takım dini-mitolojik eliştiriler ortaya çıktı ancak onlar da çok kısa ve etkisizdi. Finali de yeterince başarılı olmadığı için kitab ...more

Heinlein'dan yine farklı bir tarz bk kitabı okumuş oldum.Galiba bk kitaplarına biraz politika katmayı seviyor.

Yazar beyin,irade, bunların kontrolü ve ne kadar verimli kullanabildiğimiz üzerine gitmiş.Sınırları kaldırabildiğimiz ölçüde gelişimimizi sınırsız kılabilceğimizi söylemiş.Ama bir yerde de dediği gibi aşırı zeki/sıradanlıktan sıyrılmış insanlar o okadar zekidirler ki göz önünde bulunup diğer insanlar tarafından alaşağı edilmekten kendilerini sakınırlar ama bu da hayatta birçok değişimin
