Review: Synergetics: Explorations in the Geometry of Thinking

User Review  - Set Forth - Goodreads

This book challenges your thinking from the scope of the universe to the mathematical realm of geometrical analysis. Mathematics can be quite fun if the right apparatus are in place. Geo-palatial intensity is an all time high. Read full review

Review: Synergetics: Explorations in the Geometry of Thinking

User Review  - Paul Brooks - Goodreads

Incredibly technical, and i assume even most mathematicians would say that it is abstract. In this book, Bucky defines his vision in a very precise way. Definitely not an easy read, but THE book to read for any serious students of the Master himself. Read full review

He is best known for inventing the geodesic dome; his design has been used in structures all over the world. Besides Harvard, Fuller also attended the U.S. Naval Academy, and was a professor at Southern Illinois University. He is the author of Synergetics: Explanations in the Geometry of Thinking, a book that discusses the utopic role technology will play in the future. Critical Path is the book Fuller felt was his most important. It outlined his plan to rejuvenate earth through the use of technology.
