Third book in the original Foundation series by Isaac Asimov. Copyright 1953.

It contains two stories The Mule's search for the Second Foundation and the First Foundation's search for the Second Foundation. Hari Seldon said there would be two Foundations, but no one knows the location of the second or are even sure it exists. But every now and then somebody will try to find it. First the Mule begins to believe in it and searchs for it, later the First Foundation makes an attempt also.

The Second Foundation was created to monitor the progress of the First Foundation using the tools of psychohistory and compensate for unseen factors (such as The Mule and Daneel's Robots) using their mentalic abilities. The Second Foundation was based at Star's End, a secret location that I won't reveal incase you haven't read the great book of this name.
