What Burning Man Philosophy Can Teach Us about Building Better Communities
Over 30 years Burning Man has gone from two families on a San Francisco beach to a global movement in which hundreds of thousands of people create events on every continent. It has been the subject of fawning media profiles, an exhibit in the Smithsonian, and is beloved by tech billionaires and boho counterculturalists alike. But why does it matter? What does it actually have to offer us?
The answer, Caveat Magister writes, is simple: Burning Man's philosophy can help us build better communities. Burning Man is a prototype, and its philosophy is a how-to manual for better communities, that, instead of rules, offers principles.
Featuring iconic and impossible stories from "the playa," interviews with Burning Man's founders and staff, and personal recollections of the late Larry Harvey - Burning Man's founder, "Chief Philosophical Officer," and the author's close friend and colleague - The Scene That Became Cities introduces readers to the experience of Burning Man; explains why it grew; posits how it could impact fields as diverse as art, economics, and politics; and makes the ideas behind it accessible, actionable, and useful.
