Buckminster Fuller Explained by E.J. Applewhite

In 1993, Robert Duchesnay conducted an interview with E.J. Applewhite and it is now available online for the first time in a four part video. Parts 1 and 2 are here and 3 and 4 here


From an article from the Trimtab archives: E.J. collaborated with Bucky on Synergetics 1 & 2, and he compiled – on a typewriter not a computer — one of the oddest books in philosophical history – The Synergetics Dictionary, a 4-volume photocopied collection of 22,000 3 x 5 cards used during their work on Synergetics. On the cards he abstracted Buckminster Fuller 's thoughts on hundreds of topics from letters, books, tapes, published and unpublished papers, and thus "introduced Bucky to himself" on all these subjects. And too, in the process, he gave Fuller scholars an annotated resource beyond price.
