9780809333172: Buckminster Fuller: Anthology for the Millennium

Praise for the previous edition:

“In order to acquaint a new generation with Fuller, his former architectural partner, Zung, gathers selections [from Fuller’s writings] on topics ranging from education and environment to engineering and the Lord’s Prayer. Admirers of Fuller—such as actress Valerie Harper, author Arthur C. Clarke, and entrepreneur Steve Forbes—introduce each selection. Zung’s anthology traces the development of Fuller’s intellectual life and provides an excellent introduction for a new generation to the life and work of this brilliant thinker.”—Publishers Weekly

“Stimulating and provocative. . . . Like a Francis Bacon charting the course for future generations to pursue, Fuller anticipates the need for the ‘comprehensive designer,’ who would be a ‘synthesis of artist, inventor, mechanic, objective economist, and evolutionary strategist.’ Such a [person], he says, would be an initiator of design, able to anticipate all of man’s needs and provide new and advanced standards of living for a steadily increasing percentage of the world’s population.”—Chicago Tribune

About the Author:

Thomas T. K. Zung was a student of Buckminster Fuller and, with Fuller’s Synergetics, Inc., designed the elongated geodesic dome in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1968. He has worked on various geodesic domes, including the Jitterbug sculpture, Tensegrities, the Fly-Eye’s dome, and Fuller’s last invention, the Hang-It-All. Zung is the president of Buckminster Fuller, Sadao, and Zung and also serves as a board member of the Buckminster Fuller Institute.

Review:

"Stimulating and provocative . . . Like a Francis Bacon charting the course for future generations to pursue, Fuller anticipates the need for the 'comprehensive designer, ' who would be a 'synthesis of artist, inventor, mechanic, objective economist, and evolutionary strategist.' Such a man, he says, would be an initiator of design, able to anticipate all of man's needs and provide new and advanced standards of living for a steadily increasing percentage of the world's population."--"Chicago Tribune"

"Zung's anthology traces the development of Fuller's intellectual life and provides an excellent introduction for a new generation to the life and work of this brilliant thinker."--"Publishers Weekly"
