Richard Buckminster "Bucky" Fuller fue un diseñador, arquitecto, visionario e inventor estadounidense. También fue profesor en la Universidad del Sur de Illinois Carbondale y un prolífico escritor.

Durante su vida, Fuller buscó respuesta a la pregunta «¿Tiene la humanidad una posibilidad de sobrevivir final y exitosamente en el planeta Tierra y, sí es así, cómo?». Considerándose a sí mismo un individuo medio sin especiales medios económicos o título académico, eligió dedicar su vida a esta cuestión, intentando descubrir si un individuo podía mejorar la condición humana de una forma que no podían hacer los gobiernos, las grandes organizaciones o las empresas privadas.

En el transcurso de este experimento, que duró toda su vida, Fuller escribió veintiocho libros, acuñando y popularizando términos como sinergia, «nave espacial Tierra» y efemeralización. También realizó muchas invenciones, especialmente en los campos de la arquitectura, campo en el que su trabajo más conocido es la cúpula geodésica. Las moléculas de carbono conocidas como fulerenos tomaron su nombre de su parecido con las esferas geodésicas.

En una etapa posterior de su vida, tras trabajar en sus ideas durante muchos años, Fuller había obtenido una considerable visibilidad pública. Viajó por el mundo dando clases y recibió muchos doctorados honoris causa. Sin embargo, la mayoría de sus invenciones nunca se llegaron a fabricar por lo que recibió críticas en muchos campos en los que intervino, o simplemente se le tachó de utópico. Por otra parte, los partidarios de Fuller aseguran que su obra no ha recibido toda la atención que merece. De acuerdo con el filósofo N. J. Slabbert, Fuller tenía un estilo de escritura oscuro que ha obstaculizado la circulación de sus ideas.

„We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living.“

—  Buckminster Fuller
Context: We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory, he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living. "The New York Magazine Environmental Teach-In" by Elizabeth Barlow in New York Magazine (30 March 1970), p. 30 http://books.google.com/books?id=cccDAAAAMBAJ&printsec=frontcover#PPA30,M1

„I am convinced that human continuance depends entirely upon: the intuitive wisdom of each and every individual“

—  Buckminster Fuller
Context: I am convinced that human continuance depends entirely upon: the intuitive wisdom of each and every individual... the individual's integrity of speaking and acting only on the individual's own within-self-intuited and reasoned initiative... the individual's never joining action with others as motivated only by crowd-engendered-emotionalism, or a sense of the crowd's power to overwhelm, or in fear of holding to the course indicated by one's own intellectual convictions.

„The Things to do are: the things that need doing, that you see need to be done, and that no one else seems to see need to be done.“

—  Buckminster Fuller
Context: The Things to do are: the things that need doing, that you see need to be done, and that no one else seems to see need to be done. Then you will conceive your own way of doing that which needs to be done — that no one else has told you to do or how to do it. This will bring out the real you that often gets buried inside a character that has acquired a superficial array of behaviors induced or imposed by others on the individual. Letter to "Micheal" (16 February 1970), Micheal was a 10 year old boy who had inquired in a letter as to whether Fuller was a "doer" or a "thinker".

„Instead, humans will spontaneously take upon themselves those tasks that world society really needs to have done.“

—  Buckminster Fuller
Context: Every child has an enormous drive to demonstrate competence. If humans are not required to earn a living to be provided survival needs, many are going to want very much to be productive, but not at those tasks they did not choose to do but were forced to accept in order to earn money. Instead, humans will spontaneously take upon themselves those tasks that world society really needs to have done.

„There are no solids. There are no things. There are only interfering and noninterfering patterns operative in pure principle, and principles are eternal.“

—  Buckminster Fuller
Context: There are no solids. There are no things. There are only interfering and noninterfering patterns operative in pure principle, and principles are eternal. Principles never contradict principles.... The synergetic integral of the totality of principles is God, whose sum-total behavior in pure principle is beyond our comprehension and is utterly mysterious to us, because as humans — in pure principle — we do not and never will know all the principles.

„Humans have always unknowingly affected all Universe by every act and thought they articulate or even consider.“

—  Buckminster Fuller
Context: Humans have always unknowingly affected all Universe by every act and thought they articulate or even consider.... Realistic, comprehensively responsible, omni-system-considerate, unselfish thinking on the part of humans does absolutely affect human destiny.
