Item description for Anticipation-The End Is Where We Start From by Uwe Loesch Mihai Nadin...
In tennis, the return of a serve is successful only through anticipatory mechanisms on the part of the defensive player. When playing the stock market, anticipation of supply and demand, price variations, and other factors is crucial, the very driving engine of most exchanges. Anticipation: it occurs in all spheres of life. Not least of all is the realm of creativity, the fields of art and design. (Buckminster Fuller even taught a class in anticipatory design in 1956 at MIT.) As you might have expected, this volume casts light on design problems relating to anticipatory processes.

Reviews - What do customers think about Anticipation-The End Is Where We Start From?
Makes me think about my planning process. Feb 8, 2007
The idea of carefully looking at anticipation makes me think about my planning processes for developing products. I am amazed at what basic things we overlook.
Ideas, images, thinking Feb 6, 2006
When a book makes you to think about what you do without thinking it is a great book. Images are powerful...I was able to understand difficult concepts. The design is one of the best I ever saw. Great artist...And the text is clear. I was lucky, 3 languages available It helps someone who is not an English speaking person...
Intrigued and convinced Oct 24, 2003
As a scientist, I am intrigued by Nadin's precise and convincing arguments in favor of "anticipation" as a characteristic of living being. Each idea is carefully phrased. Solid scientific foundation along with extraordinary images make this a book to be read and discussed for a long time. This is also a book that my friends will enjoy receiving.
