Professor Dr. Robert Fuller: The Author of Mathematics of Classical and Quantum Physics, Dignity for All, and The Rowan Tree

7:08 AM by Dr. Raych Hatashe, Defense—Churches & Space, GKKH
Robert W. Fuller earned his Ph.D. in physics at Princeton University and taught at Columbia, where he co-authored Mathematics of Classical and Quantum Physics. After serving as president of Oberlin College, he became a citizen diplomat and set about improving international relations during the Cold War. During the 1990s, he served as board chair of the nonprofit global corporation Internews, promoting democracy via free and independent media.

After the Cold War ended with the collapse of the USSR, Fuller reflected on his career and realized that he had been, at different times in his life, a somebody and a nobody. His periodic sojourns into “Nobodyland” led him to identify rankism—abuse of the power inherent in rank—and ultimately to write Somebodies and Nobodies: Overcoming the Abuse of Rank. Three years later, he published a sequel that focuses on building a “dignitarian society” titled All Rise: Somebodies, Nobodies, and the Politics of Dignity. With co-author Pamela Gerloff, he has also published Dignity for All: How to Create a World Without Rankism. His most recent books are Religion and Science: A Beautiful Friendship?, Genomes, Menomes, Wenomes: Neuroscience and Human Dignity, Belonging: A Memoir, and The Rowan Tree: A Novel.

As a recognized authority on dignity and rankism, Robert Fuller’s ideas and books have been widely covered in the media, including The New York Times, National Public Radio, C-SPAN, The Boston Globe, the BBC, Voice of America, and O, The Oprah Magazine.
Robert W. Fuller’s Groundbreaking Political Novel
As Arthurian myth sowed the seeds of democracy, The Rowan Tree foretells a world founded upon dignity. Anchored by a pair of interlocking love stories, this unflinching novel of ideas brims with passionate quests, revelatory failures, and inextinguishable hope.

The Rowan Tree is an inspirational tour de force that reaches from the rebellious American ’60s into humanity’s global future. Soul-searching treks around the world intersect with campus revolution, basketball, math, ballet, and a destined rise to the White House. Love runs ahead of politics and lights the way for nations to follow.

The Rowan Tree…is the type of novel that is often called “sweeping” – it spans six decades and has a backdrop of global politics as a framework. It tackles tough subjects, the types of subjects that often lead to heated conversations on The Good Men Project – education reform, interracial relationships, nuclear disarmament, world government, college and pro basketball…Ultimately, The Rowan Tree tells the story of a young man’s search for meaning and purpose in an age of irony. He finds it in his discovery of the centrality of dignity in human relationships, and this insight propels him onto the world stage. – The Good Men Project

The Rowan Tree is a monumental tale – a modern-day Arthurian legend. The characters are vibrant and indelible, and the story moves with astonishing speed from a taboo campus romance to the corridors of global power. Along the way, we learn about some of the most important issues of our time – nuclear disarmament, sexual identities, racism, etc. The underlying theme is humanity’s quest for dignity. We learn about educational reform and governance, go backstage in the world of classical ballet, and follow the hero and his son’s journey to transform the world’s political system along dignitarian lines.”
—– David Hoffman, Founder/CEO Internews

“Nearly twenty years in the making, Robert Fuller’s epic novel about the many sides of DIGNITY has arrived. I’ve had a ring side seat, watching it evolve from a campus romance into the global novel it finally became. He intuited Obama’s presidency years before it became a fact and his vision of the US and China co-creating a peaceful and robust world is a scenario worth holding.”
—– John Steiner, Social Entrepreneur

What do these problems have in common? Dr. Robert Fuller argues they are all examples of a more fundamental problem, one that we, as a society, have yet to address. He sees them all as examples of rankism.

RANKISM: The Common Thread
Rankism is the exploitation or humiliation of those with less power or lower status. Simply put, rankism occurs when the somebodies of the world use the power of their rank to take advantage over those they see as nobodies. Rankism is the root cause of a wide variety of dominating behaviors. As the general cause of indignity, rankism is no more defensible than the now familiar indignities of racism, sexism, etc. Dr. Fuller is quick to add, though, that eliminating rankism doesn’t mean eliminating rank any more than getting rid of racism means getting rid of race. Rank can be a useful organizational tool that, used properly, helps us achieve group goals. It is the abuse of rank that cries out for our attention.

DIGNITY: The Cure For Rankism
How do you change something that’s so pervasive and that has for so long gone unnamed? With dignity, Fuller says. Treating people with dignity, no matter where they fall on the corporate, social, familial, or political ladder is the key to overcoming rankism in all its manifestations. In rankist environments, creativity is stifled, students can’t learn, workers are disloyal, health is compromised, families suffer dysfunction, and victims want revenge. Dignity is the antidote.


“Robert Fuller’s Somebodies and Nobodies is a wonderful and tremendously important book on the “ism” that is far more encompassing than racism, sexism or ageism. Rankism must be our prime target from now on in. Viva Fuller!”
Studs Terkel, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Working

“If only all the problems in the world were just about money, or land, or religion, or racism. But in fact, they’re about power. All of these things are just excuses for the ugly tendency of those in power to abuse those without it. Worse, power often seduces the powerless as much as it corrupts the powerful. Robert Fuller exposes these ugly dynamics – and in exposing them, helps to make them easier to overturn.”
Esther Dyson, Internet guru, Editor Release 1.0

“Watch for a dignitarian movement against rankism that, like the civil rights and women’s movements, will transform American life – in the boardroom, the schoolroom, the bedroom and, a lot sooner than we might think, at the ballot box.”
Jerry Greenfield, co-founder of Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream.

“The quest for recognition, especially by those who lack status, has long been seen as one of the driving forces of human history. Somebodies and Nobodies explains how recognition, or its absence, affects your life, and what we can all do to make sure that we treat each other with the dignity we each deserve.”
Francis Fukuyama, Professor of International Political Economy, Johns Hopkins University, and author of The End of History

“Fuller gives us the essential tools to fight abuses of rank and to build high-performing institutions and organizations based on respect.”
Wes Boyd, Co-founder of MoveOn.org

All Rise give us a clear mandate for transforming our society into a true democracy.”
Rosalind Wiseman, author of Queen Bees and Wannabes

“This handbook [Dignity for All] brings an exciting new voice to social science and to the public as well. I believe that these ideas are destined to play an important role in our century.”
Thomas J. Scheff, Professor Emeritus of Sociology, UC-Santa Barbara
