If you plan to examine the book, then you’ll want to try to focus on just one aspect that runs through most, if not all, of the stories. It may be a character or characters such as Susan Calvin or Powell and Donovan. It may be the development and increased sophistication of the robots as the stories progress. It may be the Three Laws of Robotics and how they play out in the various stories. It may be the changing, dynamic relationships between robots and humans. I’m sure there are other ideas as well. Whatever you choose, please try to find something that threads its way throughout the majority of the nine short stories in our text.
