Buckminster "Bucky" Fuller wore many hats: Architect, author, inventor, futurist, environmentalist. Perhaps he is best known for popularizing the geodesic dome (think: Spaceship Earth at EPCOT), but he also published nearly thirty books. As an author, he is characterized by a unique and somewhat ironic usage of long sentences and compound words to achieve his desired precision. Intuition is the first of two books in which he employs blank verse, this time to extoll the metaphysical virtues of human intuition. Also includes Fuller's own take on The Lord's Prayer.
