R. Buckminster Fuller is regarded as one of the most important figures of the 20th century, renowned for his achievements as an inventor, designer, architect, philosopher, mathematician, and dogged individualist. Perhaps best remembered for the Geodesic Dome and the term "Spaceship Earth," his work and his writings have had a profound impact on modern life and thought.

Critical Path is Fuller's master work--the summing up of a lifetime's thought and concern--as urgent and relevant as it was upon its first publication in 1981. Critical Path details how humanity found itself in its current situation--at the limits of the planet's natural resources and facing political, economic, environmental, and ethical crises.

The crowning achievement of an extraordinary career, Critical Path offers the reader the excitement of understanding the essential dilemmas of our time and how responsible citizens can rise to meet this ultimate challenge to our future.

R. Buckmister Fuller received 47 honorary degrees, held twenty-eight patents, was awarded the Medal of Freedom, and was the author of twenty nine books. He died in 1983.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should Read This book represents an holistic approach to the entire history of humanity. It's both detailed and expansive. It discusses science, humanity, history, politics, spirituality,and other areas, integrating them all. Buckminster Fuller is a fearless thinker and this book challenges you to consider some difficult ideas. I found it to be worth the discomfort and very rewarding. My copy of this book is already in circulation with my friends . Money well spent.
