Etect life on the hundreds of newly colonized planets The PP Corps members wander the universe looking for habitable planets for humanity but first searching t horoughly for native intell. One freuent complaint that I ve read about this book was that the stories are disjointed and disconnected The reason for this is that the novel is a fix up of four previous stories written from 1965 to 1971The premise is that there is an organization the Practical Philosopher Corp the members of which travel to various planets to determine if the life forms on a newly discovered are intelligent If so then the planet is considered off limits much to the chagrin of many expansionists called the New Romans who regard colonizing the universe as mankind s manifest destiny Not a bad concept I just felt the concept could have been explored a lot The ecology of some of the aliens were uite interesting especially the Cryer of Crystal But how hard can it be to determine if a life form is intelligent if when it meets you it begins to have a conversation with youThe last story in the group was probably the most disjointed and attempted to bring in a conspiracy element to the series which I didn t really care for Some of the writing is dated kind of unavoidable in science fiction In a lot of cases our actual science surpasses the speculative science in the fiction The hero is a bit of ladies man which is understandable when you consider that these were written in the late 60 s early 70 sIt was an okay book not bad certainly not great just good

    Catching up on my old enthusiasm for science fiction This book is by now a classic It portrays the professional life of an evaluator of societies for that thing called 'intelligence' Speculative exobiology has always been of interest to me While I've never been interested in vast conspiracy theories I'll have to admit that many small scale conpiracies seem to be common I recommend beginning this book to get a flavor of the plot

    Un romanzo con un eroe tutto d'un pezzo come si usava una volta Ci sono idee chiaramente d'atmosfera Campbelliana e alla base c'è anche lo spirito di Star trek degli anni '60 L'dea di un corpo di Filosofi Ambientali in giro per le stelle a salvare specie protointelligenti dallo sfruttamento dell'umanità non è male C'è una buona

    Very dated work of juvenile science fiction I disliked the loosely jointed episodic stories that make up the novel proper and the occasional bouts of late 60s early 70s slang were particularly jarring and bounced
