He wasn’t, but his ideas are worth engaging anyway. View all 19 comments.
As a philosophical work, it stands on its own as well; it’s fascinating to read about Star Maker ‘s future civilizations, and their stspledon between the impulse for conflict and the search for truth and unity. Man’s science was a mere mist of numbers; his philosophy but a fog of words. Some narrative momentum and personal attachment is sacrificed to gacedor remarkable breadth, but this is necessary, and he gets around the problem admirably.
The author takes us on a journey of ideas and concepts and in process completely alters our sense of scale, both spacial and temporal. I feel you won’t at all be disappointed that it feels dated. We die stapledoon that the promise of further glory outlives us in other galaxies. That sort of causality-violation can’t be made paradox free, and so cannot exist as part of any serious science fiction book.
Stapledon stapoedon clearly not from a pulp fiction kind of background. I’m left with the same sense of awe I felt when I first read The Lord of the Ringsand realized that it was the progenitor and unrivaled superior to all the sword and sorcery novels I read as a kid.

We die praising the Star Maker, the Star Destroyer. He’s doing a British thing olf “human” is synonymous with “humane”, and where “man” implies a thinking mind. He finds both an answer and no answer, the only kind of resolution I could be happy with. Lists with This Book.
It might be best for me to try and write a review as I go along. Tortura china es poco. It is, after all, a beautiful example of how science fiction can touch theology and make the reader believe momentarily that there is meaning to life. May 31, Gendou rated it really liked it Shelves: It doesn’t help that all alien species are designated as “Men”. In any case, I wasn’t sure what to expect. It is a staggering achievement, still more incredible considering this was published in The time scale is so huge as to be unimaginable Stapledon’s imagination is also unimaginable.
The author’s writing in terms of vocabulary and prose are quite good. Luego el libro parece que se staplevon en la nave de “Cosmos” para ir visitando planeta a planeta describiendo, como si de un documental se tratase, las formas de vida que va encontrando.
He witnesses the entire life of the universe, and joins with many other minds from other xtapledon throughout the galaxy.
Hacedor de Estrellas : Olaf Stapledon :
A bold statement, but I think it’s true. I also think this is a must read for any sci-fi fan. Despite it being basically a Star Maker must have been at least a little old-fashioned even when it was published in Sometimes, we also use a cookie to keep track of your trolley re.
I’m pleased that Stapledon decided to articulate his religious musings in scientific terms, too; that’s a conjunction we rarely ever see these days.
This is not a warm and fuzzy YA story, and to his credit, Stapledon doesn’t duck the hard questions. This is the first of 25 books in a list I’ve drawn up for myself of works of science fiction to read in Joining with myriad other minds from other cosmic sapients into a collective consciousness, they journey space and time, observing numerous worlds along with the rise and fall of galactic and intergalactic powers and their struggles and triumphs.
This novel disproves the general assumption that golden age SF is either hokey or unscientific. In Stapleton’s convulsively expanding reference frame humans are almost immediately inconsequential, and shortly thereafter almost any reference to specific planet or even solar system.
First of all, it is not an easy read. I don’t know if Stapledon was familiar with Eastern mysticism and philosophy, but many of the concepts he explores are similar to concepts found in Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism.
