Isaac Asimov’s Caliban (Caliban, book 1) by Roger MacBride Allen
It is a mystery, in the same way Asimov’s robot series occurred. Macbridw sad spinoff from Asimovs great works. Someetimes it dragged a bit but, overall a good job. The robots produced on this planet have their Three Laws integrated into every neural pathway, such that even seeing harm done to a human can physically destroy a robot’s brain.

Isaac Asimov’s Caliban
While the robot nearly seizes in brainlock and ends up precipitating a minor catastrophe by hyperwaving for help, the story the robot tells confirms what Kresh later uses to get the truth out of Terach. There is no absolute good or evil here, which leaves ample room for realistic philosophizing over many relevant aspects of society.
More powerful than the lectures is how Allen portrays the society of Hades.
He could be quite scientific in his explanations, but not like the incredibly-long monologue about the Three Laws, and allfn problems with them, and the “New Laws”, and the “Fourth Law”. De Ruimters waren de voorvaderen van de mannen en de vrouwen die in een grijs verleden met hun robots de Aarde ontvluchtten.
This story starts with the premise that Robots, highly evolved robots are sentient beings and so should be considered as It is difficult because Asimov became more left progressive and collectivist in his writings as the years went by. The book is pretty good, but the print is smaller than desired and the paper is not excellent.
