Synergetics

After reading the Internet edition of Amy Edmondson's A Fuller Explanation,* I decided to put together this area in my website. In the early 80's, I had worked through the Synergetics and Synergetics 2 books by Buckminster Fuller. Amy's book was an interesting refresher. This area is devoted to my various explorations rooted in Fuller's synergetics studies.

*The hardback version of A Fuller Explanation was originally published in 1987. A paperback came out in 1992. Those are what Mark Somers' version is based on. A facsimile of the 2007 edition is now available at Google Books. It has an additional foreword by J. Baldwin.
