Description: R. Buckminster Fuller's "explorations in the geometry of thinking" is detailed in two thick volumes, Synergetics and Synergetics 2. Synergetics thoroughly permeates the rest of Fuller's writings as well. The invention for which Fuller is most famous, the geodesic dome, derives from his geometric explorations. Current Topics on these pages (partial listing): Concentric Hierarchy of Polyhedra; Isotropic Vector Matrix; Geodesic Domes and Spheres; Dymaxion Map; Desovereignization?; General Systems Theory. Also includes Curriculum Concepts that may eventually be developed into commercial products.
