R. Buckminster Fuller (1895–1983) was an architect, engineer, geometrician, cartographer, philosopher, futurist, inventor of the famous geodesic dome, and one of the most brilliant thinkers of his time. For more than five decades, he set forth his comprehensive perspective on the world's problems in numerous essays, which offer an illuminating insight into the intellectual universe of this "renaissance man." These texts remain surprisingly topical even today, decades after their initial publication. While Fuller wrote the works in the 1960's and 1970's, they could not be more timely: like desperately needed time-capsules of wisdom for the critical moment he foresaw, and in which we find ourselves. Long out of print, they are now being published again, together with commentary by Jaime Snyder, the grandson of Buckminster Fuller. Designed for a new generation of readers, Snyder prepared these editions with supplementary material providing background on the texts, factual updates, and interpretation of his visionary ideas. A biography of Buckminster Fuller's "thought development," Ideas and Integrities presents an intimate self-portrait of the experiences and discoveries behind his groundbreaking ideas and inventions. Through in-depth essays like "Total Thinking," "Design for Survival – Plus," and "The Comprehensive Man," spanning the period from his earliest writings to the invention of the geodesic dome and his explosion onto the world stage, he delivers a powerful manifesto for the comprehensive design revolution he had championed: "To make man a success on earth.... we must design our way to positive effectiveness." Buckminster Fuller's prophetic 1962 book Education Automation brilliantly anticipated the need to rethink learning in light of a dawning revolution in informational technology – "upcoming major world industry." Along with other essays on education, including "Breaking the Shell of Permitted Ignorance," "Children: the True Scientists" and "Mistake Mystique" this volume presents a powerful approach for preparing ourselves to face epochal changes on spaceship earth: "whether we are going to make it or not... is really up to each one of us; it is not something we can delegate to the politicians – what kind of world are you really going to have?"

2.0 von 5 Sternen short, formerly publicly-available 1962 book repackaged w/later material 16. Juni 2013
Von Timothy McCormick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This volume actually packages the short 1962 core work "Education Automation" with a number of other lesser-known writings. "Education Automation" was a 1961 address delivered by Fuller at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, where he was assistant professor. The text was long available online in various places, including the Buckminster Fuller Institute, which this volume's editor, Fuller's grandson, co-founded. It has apparently been removed from there and most places online, perhaps related to the creation of this print edition, but it seems still findable with a bit of effort by Googling "Buckminster Fuller" "education automation" and looking for result at "preterhuman."

I would have to give this volume low marks on ethical/educational grounds, because a) it unhelpfully confuses the identity of the key work "Education Automation" with later ancillary works, rather than, say, choosing a helpful title like "R. Buckminster Fuller on Education" as University of Massachusetts Press did with its very similar 1979 collection; and b) it may have helped convert a once freely available work, produced for a public university by a public employee 50 years ago, into a much less accessible, commercial print edition. Call me idealistic, but I'd rather see publishing and editorial work widening, not enclosing knowledge.

5.0 von 5 Sternen On building a de-segregated, co-educational college... in 1962 25. Juli 2013
Von Max Fenton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
There's a terrific book of a lecture by Buckminster Fuller called Education Automation. He was invited to speak to the trustees of a college building a new campus in, I think, Ohio. It's 1962 and he goes on this whirlwind about nautical history and you can tell they're rolling their eyes. About 20 minutes into a history of western civilization he basically says: white people are mutts. They're the mix of all humans who have had boats and have traveled from Africa to Scandinavia to India to Europe and finally to the US. And having made that point, he says: so don't plan to have a white-only school. Don't build segregated bathrooms in the campus you are building from scratch, but maybe be prescient enough to build bathrooms for ladies of the same number as mens rooms. 1962. Not far-future stuff, but definitely heading off some architectural details that would quickly need refactoring.

And having explained they should have bathrooms for people of many colors and sexes, he goes on to suggest they not spend their entire budget on the big football field the generic local politician will be pressuring them to build, but instead to consider that lectures from the greatest institutions around the world will soon be arriving via "two-way television" and that the shape of a new campus for modern education would be one of small seminar-friendly classrooms, libraries for studies, media centers for watching these lectures alone, and lecture-size theaters for watching them with tutors and peers.
