AUTHORS: Don Michael
Don Michael (1923 - 2000) came to San Francisco in 1981 after retiring from his joint position as Professor of Planning and Public Policy and Professor of Psychology at the University of Michigan. Previously, he had worked for many years in policy circles in Washington, after gaining degrees in physics and in social psychology from Harvard University and in sociology from the University of Chicago.
Don was a remarkable person; his genius was in blending an astonishing intellect with a deeply compassionate soul and almost childlike delight and curiosity about the world and the sense we make of it. His humanity integrity, and commitment to confronting the most vexing and complex problems using wisdom that might stretch from cybernetics to Zen without trivializing either, continue to inspire and challenge everyone who encounters his work.
