Charles Fourier
b. 4-7-1772; Besancon, France
d. 10-10-1837; Paris

Charles Fourier was a utopian philosopher and socialist who is credited with coining the word féminisme (feminism), arguing that “the liberty of women was the general principle of all social progress” and “to elevate the status of manual labor, to rescue it from a long-standing tradition of degradation and denigration”. Fourier's ideas were inspiration for several utopian community experiments: La Reunion near present day Dallas, TX, North American Phalanx in New Jersey, and Community Place in New York State.

George Fox
b. July 1623; Leicestershire, Kingdom of England
d. 1-13-1691; London

George Fox, founder of the Religious Society of Friends, known as the “Quakers”, or Friends, during a time of religious dissent in England.

In 1661 Fox and eleven other Friends issued a broadside, now known as the “peace testimony”, committing themselves to oppose all outward wars and strife as contrary to the will of God.

• According to Fox's Journal the term “Quaker” was originally derogatorily applied in court by a Justice “because we bid them tremble at the word of God”.
• George Fox and Margaret Fell (1614-1702) were married in 1669. Her home Swarthmore Hall is the namesake of Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania.

for Meaning,
Viktor E. Frankl

Viktor E. Frankl, MD, PhD
b. 3-26-1905; Vienna
d. 9-2-1997

Viktor E. Frankl, a survivor of the Holocaust, was the founder of logotherapy and a key figure in existential therapy. His healing message was honored with a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Viktor E. Frankl quotes ~
• “Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life; everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated, thus, everyone's task is unique as his specific opportunity to implement it.”
• “Everything can be taken from a man or a woman but one thing: the last of human freedoms to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.”
• “Each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible.”
• “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”

Margaret Fuller
b. 5-23-1810; Cambridge, MA
d. 6-19-1850; ship wreck off Fire Isl., NY

Margaret Fuller was a women's rights activist, journalist, and Transcentalist. She was also an educator, bringing women together for “conversations” meant to compensate for the lack of formal educaton for women. Fuller was the New York Tribune's first woman editor (1844), and also it's first woman foreign correspondent. It was on her return to the US that she died in a ship wreck.

Margaret Fuller quotes ~
• “Art can only be truly art by presenting an adequate outward symbol of some fact in the interior life.”
• “Male and female represent the two sides of the great radical dualism. But in fact they are perpetually passing into one another. Fluid hardens to solid, solid rushes to fluid. There is no wholly masculine man, no purely feminine woman.”
• “Nature provides exceptions to every rule.”
• “The especial genius of women I believe to be electrical in movement, intuitive in function, spiritual in tendency.”

b. 7-12-1895; Milton, Massachusetts
d. 7-1-1983; Los Angeles, CA

Bucky Fuller was an American architect, author, designer, futurist, inventor, poet and visionary.

Fuller was primarily concerned with the question “Does humanity have a chance to survive lastingly and successfully on planet Earth, and if so, how?” Further he wanted to know how an average individual without special monetary means or academic degree, could do to improve humanity's condition that large organizations, governments, or private business could not do.

Buckminster Fuller, the great nephew of feminist and author Margaret Fuller, developed the geodesic dome (geodesics are a network of great circles lying approximately on the surface of a sphere), designed the Dymaxion House, attended a Froebelian kindergarten, and has the fullerene, a carbon molecule, named for him.

“All children are born geniuses. 9999 out of every 10,000 are swiftly, inadvertently, degeniused by grown-ups. This happens because human beings are born naked, helpless, and though superbly equipped cerebrally, utterly lacking in experience, therefore utterly ignorant. Their delicate sensing equipment is, as yet, untried. Born with build-in hunger, thirst, curiosity, the procreative urge, they can only learn what humanity has learned by trial and error, by billions and billions of errors. Yet humanity is also endowed with self-deceiving pride. All those witnessing the errors of others proclaim that they (the witnesses) could have prevented those errors had they only been consulted. “People should not make mistakes” they mistakenly say. Motivated entirely by love, but also by fear for the futures of the children they love, parents, in their ignorance, act as though they know all the answers and curtail the spontaneous exploratory acts of their children lest the children make “mistakes”. But genius does its own thinking; it has confidence in its own exploratory findings, in its own intuitions, in the knowledge gained from its own mistakes. Nature has her own gestation rates for evolutionary development.
The actions of parents represent the checks and balances of nature's gestation control. Humanity can evolve healthily only at a given rate. Maria Montessori was fortunately permitted to maintain, sustain, and cultivate her innate genius. Her genius invoked her awareness of the genius inherent in all children. Her intuition and initiative inspired her to discover ways of safeguarding this genius while allaying fears of parents. But the way was not always easy. Hers was the difficult frontiering task of genius.”
