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.

„There will come a time when the proper education of children, by a glorified system of spontaneous education of choice, similar to the Montessori System, will be made possible.“

—  Buckminster Fuller
Context: There will come a time when the proper education of children, by a glorified system of spontaneous education of choice, similar to the Montessori System, will be made possible. Children, as well as grown-ups, in their individual, glorified, drudgery-proof homes of Labrador, the tropics, the Orient, or where you will, to which they can pass with pleasure and expedition by means of ever-improving transportation, will be able to tune in their television and radio to the moving picture lecture of, let us say, President Lowell of Harvard; the professor of Mathematics of Oxford; of the doctor of Indian antiquities of Delhi, etc. Education by choice, with its marvelous motivating psychology of desire for truth, will make life ever cleaner and happier, more rhythmical and artistic.

„Whether it is to be Utopia or Oblivion will be a touch-and-go relay race right up to the final moment. . . . Humanity is in ‘final exam’ as to whether or not it qualifies for continuance in Universe“

—  Buckminster Fuller
Context: Whether it is to be Utopia or Oblivion will be a touch-and-go relay race right up to the final moment.... Humanity is in ‘final exam’ as to whether or not it qualifies for continuance in Universe

„This book is written with the conviction that there are no "good" or "bad" people, no matter how offensive or eccentric to society they may seem. . . You and I didn't design people. God designed people. What I am trying to do is to discover why God included humans in Universe.“
