When R. Buckminster Fuller's landmark work Synergetics was published, it was hailed as "brilliant... and shot through with moments of poetry..." (The New York Times Book Review) and the "distilled wisdom of a lifetime spent contemplating the Universe from angles and directions never before suspected" ( Arthur C. Clarke). In Synergetics 2, Fuller explores further along the trails of thought he been singlehandedly blazed for over half a century using an inspired combination of geometrical logic and metaphors from human experience, inviting the reader on a trip through a four-dimensional Universe where concepts as diverse as entropy, Einstein's relativity equations, and the meaning of existence become understandable to the lay reader.
