Program Description

Buckminster Fuller has been called, “the Leonardo da Vinci of our time.” In this conversation, the late visionary inventor, philosopher and humanitarian gives his extraordinarily insightful picture of where the human race is now, and how to proceed from here. He describes “cosmic cost accounting,” being a “comprehensivist” instead of a specialist, doing more with less, experiential knowing, and the ultimate challenge to the future of humanity. In his autobiographical book Critical Path (St. Martin’s Press 1981), Bucky sums up a lifetime of deep thought and concern for the planet and humankind. This conversation is the “summing up of the summing up.”
