A compelling call to apply Buckminster Fullers creative problem solving to present-day problemsA self-professed “comprehensive anticipatory design scientist,” the inventor Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) was undoubtedly a visionary. Fullers creations often bordered on the realm of science fiction, ranging from the freestanding geodesic dome to the three-wheel Dymaxion car to a bathroom requiring neither plumbing nor sewage. Yet in spite of his brilliant mind and lifelong devotion to serving mankind, Fullers expansive ideas were often dismissed, and have faded from public memory since his death.You Belong to the Universe documents Fullers six-decade quest to “make the world work for 100 percent of humanity.” Critic and experimental philosopher Jonathon Keats sets out to revive Fullers unconventional practice of comprehensive anticipatory design, placing Fullers philosophy in a modern context and dispelling much of the mythology surrounding Fullers life. Keats argues that Fullers life and ideas, namely doing “the most with the least,” are now more relevant than ever as humanity struggles to meet the demands of an exploding world population with finite resources. Delving deeply into Buckminster Fullers colorful world, Keats applies Fullers most important concepts to present-day issues, arguing that his ideas are now not only feasible, but necessary.From transportation to climate change, urban design to education, You Belong to the Universe demonstrates that Fullers holistic problem-solving techniques may be the only means of addressing some of the worlds most pressing issues. Keats timely book challenges each of us to become comprehensive anticipatory design scientists, providing the necessary tools for continuing Fullers legacy of improving the world.
