an expert in psychohistory n.
I’m trying to look at it from the angle of psychohistorian. If there’d been telepaths in the past, things might have been different.
The semantics expert, the psychohistorian, and the ethnologist joined them.
It is not an easy thing to be a Psychohistorian in the first place; and not even the best Psychohistorian need necessarily qualify to be a Speaker.
Tomlin, the psycho-historian, you never could tell, could you?… A dry-as-dust profession and an appearance to go with it.
Back in 1950, I wrote a short story…. In it, the great psychohistorian, Hari Seldon, is about to demonstrate an important point.
Seldon crossed the grounds in his passage from his office (First Minister) to his laboratory (Psychohistorian).
The stand-out story is ‘Historical Crisis’, by Donald Kingsbury. It is nothing more than a parody of The Foundation Trilogy…. It’s set in the Second Empire and concerns the fate of a renegade Psychohistorian.
