Buckminster Fuller on Education

“But, of course, the university itself won’t be anything like what it is now…The individual is going to study mainly at home. And the great teachers won’t have to spend their time delivering the same lectures over and over, because they’ll put them on film. The teachers and scholars will be free to spend their time developing more and more knowledge about man’s whole experience–past, present, and future…Today’s students know instinctively that his world is dynamic, not static, and that the normal state of affairs is constant change and evolution.”

Buckminster Fuller, The New Yorker, January 8, 1966
