Many books have been written about the life and work of Buckminster Fuller. He was unquestionably one of the most talented and brilliant people of modern times. However, no one until now has looked in depth at his metaphysical view of life. This book, Metaphysics of Buckminster Fuller, does that in a clear and interesting manner. Bucky, as he liked to be called, is known around the world for being responsible for over three hundred thousand geodesic domes that have been constructed. One of his inventions is an important part of the Space Laboratory. While he took great pride in this work and much more, he desired most of all to prove that the only realities in life are metaphysical and not physical. His metaphysical view of life allowed him to give all his energy to creating physical tools to make life easier without giving any thought to "making a living" or how to afford to do creative work. He believed that the metaphysical principles operating in Universe would provide anyone what was needed if they chose to give their talents totally to the welfare of humanity. He documented how well this worked for him, and those records are kept today in a special collection at Stanford University. He said repeatedly that the principles he used to succeed would work for anyone. The book tells the story of Bucky's early inability to be successful for himself and others. He was so filled with a sense of failure that he considered suicide at the age of 32. He had a special experience at that point that led him to commit "egocide" instead of suicide, and from that point on, his life took on a totally new energy and power. Because he knew that life is not a physical process, but rather a metaphysical one, he had much to share on such subjects as life and death, reality, evolution, what is life's purpose, and other basic life issues. He supports with hard-core physical evidence everything that he shares about these subjects. No one had a better intellectual grasp of our physical universe. No one has better translated that knowledge into metaphysical wisdom. Bucky spoke to over 400 Universities and Colleges around the world and received 47 honorary doctorate degrees. He had a great love for the young people he lectured to and felt that the hope for the future of humankind was in the hands of the young. He based this on their receptivity to the metaphysical insights he shared and their willingness to break free from measuring life by "what's in it for me." I think we are seeing this all over the world-young people are standing up to dictatorships and willing risking their lives for what they believe. The book deals with Bucky's strong conviction that power groups that measure life and goals with their brains and not their minds dominate the world. He makes it very clear that the brain and the mind are not the same. He spoke about this, with great authority, to a national convention of neurosurgeons and the book shares some of that talk. It was a talk, because this amazing man never prepared speeches. Bucky felt, as do many other thinkers of recent times, that the humanity is at a critical point. This book shares his clear insight about what makes our times so critical, and how can we turn it into a time of positive transformation. It is a book that is written in a manner that anyone can understand and profit. It is a book to be shared with as many people as possible for their individual understanding and to create a metaphysical energy wave to change the present direction of human evolution.

In this inspiring account of Fuller's life and legacy, Lloyd Steven Sieden brings new light to Fuller's belief system and recognizes his many contributions to humanity.

BACKGROUND: DEPARTMENTS, SPECIALIZATION, AND PROFESSIONALIZATION IN AMERICAN HIGHER EDUCATION For over half of its history, U.S. higher education turned out mostly cler gymen and lawyers. Looking back on that period, we might be tempted to think that this meant specialized training for the ministry or the practice of law. That, however, was not the case. What a college education in the U.S. prepared young men (almost exclusively) for, from the founding of Harvard College in 1636 through the founding of hundreds of denominational colleges in the first two-thirds of the nineteenth century, was leadership in the community. Professionalization and specialization only began to take root, and then became the dominant mode in U.S. higher education, in the period roughly from 1860--1920. In subsequent decades, that seemed to many critics to signal the end of what might be called "education in wisdom," the preparation of leaders for a broad range of responsibilities. Professionalization, specialization, and departmentalization of higher education in the U.S. began in the last quarter of the nineteenth century.

This volume presents 25 essays on the philosophy of design. With contributions originating from philosophy and design research, and from product design to architecture, it gives a rich spectrum of state of the art research and brings together studies on philosophical topics in which design plays a key role and design research to which philosophy contributes. Coverage zooms in on specific and more well-known design disciplines but also includes less-studied disciplines, such as graphic design, interior architecture and exhibition design. In addition, contributors take up traditional philosophical issues, such as epistemology, politics, phenomenology and philosophy of science. Some essays cover philosophical issues that emerge in design, for instance what design can do in addressing societal problems, while other essays analyze main-stream philosophical issues in which design is part of the argument, as for instance abduction and aesthetics. Readers will discover new research with insightful analyses of design research, design thinking and the specificity of design. Overall, this comprehensive overview of an emerging topic in philosophy will be of great interest to researchers and students.

The Anthropocene is heralded as a new epoch distinguishing itself from all foregoing eons in the history of the Earth. It is characterized by the overarching importance of the human species in a number of respects, but also by the recognition of human dependence and precariousness. A critical human turn affecting the human condition is still in the process of arriving in the wake of an initial Copernican Revolution and Kant's ensuing second Copernican Counter-revolution. Within this landscape, issues concerning the human - its finitude, responsiveness, responsibility, maturity, auto-affection and relationship to itself - appear rephrased and re-accentuated as decisive probing questions. In this book Sverre Raffnsøe explores how the change has ramifications for the kinds of knowledge that can be acquired concerning human beings and for the human sciences as a study of human existential beings in the world.

In 1970 and 1971, Fuller was concurrently composing a poem suggested by his new Morgan sloop “Intuition” and rewriting, with my collaboration, the projected first chapter of Synergetics called “Brain and Mind.” Fuller agreed with my suggestion that this first chapter had an integrity of its own separate from the rest of the Synergetics manuscript, and he felt that both of these works had an urgency that argued for their publication at the earliest possible date. WIth the help of Bill Whitehead, our editor at Doubleday, they were combined in Intuition, the first of his two books of blank verse.

This popular introductory text provides a unique set of teaching tools for instructors who prefer a synoptic approach. The text is visually appealing and reader friendly. The author accents his accessible writing with cartoons, quotations, and related findings from the social and physical sciences, reinforcing his conception of philosophy as the individual's attempt to unify disparate world views. The style of writing makes central philosophical concepts readily engaging to students. Interspersed biographies give the student a feeling for the lives of the great thinkers who have fashioned the Western philosophical tradition and have determined largely how we think today. Above all, this text nurtures the analytical skills students will need to critically engage the "big picture" of Western philosophy for themselves.
