Issac Asimov was an incredibley intelligent and prolific writer, will books fitting into 9 of 10 categories in the Dewey Decimal system.  (no books devoted exclusively to philosophy) (although his 3 laws of robotics could probably while fill multiple books).

Is there anyone like him today?

I would say that science is more complex now and more specialized so people are less likely to be able to contribute in as many areas as asimov and clark and the like were able to. That being said there are alot of scientists and it professional types who write sci-fi and contributearticles to magazines, none come to mind atm but reading the bio's on escape pod episodes might point you in the proper direction.
