The Buckminster Fuller Reader Reviews
This book is a collection of essays and speeches given by Fuller throughout his career, mostly focused on his architectural and scientific work. One of the recurring themes of the book was the danger of over-specialization: the situation in which specialists are unable to communicate with each other and the task of integrating their work is left largely to intellectual inferiors. Fuller believed that architects had the only technical profession concerned with putting things together in an era of the increased fractionation by intensive specialization. Hence, this book was largely aimed towards the architect/engineer populations to which Fuller spoke throughout his career.
