Asimov revisited

We gave Asimov short shrift in class last week as we were running out of time, so I offer you this blog post about an interview he did in the 1980s in which he addresses some of the topics we have touched upon: “Isaac Asimov on the Thrill of Lifelong Learning, Science vs. Religion, and the Role of Science Fiction in Advancing Society.” Decades on, a lot of what he says is still topical.
