Operating manual for spaceship earth
Simon and Schuster, 1969 - 143 Seiten
R. Buckminster Fuller's Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth, published in 1969, imagines our species as a crew, united by a shared fate, on a tiny spaceship traveling through infinity. It can be read even today as the most intelligent metaphor for thinking about humankind on this planet. Fuller accepted the challenge pre-sented by this metaphor, using his inventions & writings to contribute to the safe operations of Spaceship Earth. This title is an exact facsimile of the 1969 edition.
