Steps to an Ecology of Mind: Recursive Vision of Gregory Bateson

Steps to an Ecology of Mind: Recursive Vision of Gregory Bateson

Gregory Bateson.  One of the most brilliant man I have read.  Please check out his books and books about him.  He was married to Margaret Mead, a famous Anthropologist.  His daughters Mary Catherine Bateson and Nora Bateson have also published books and documentaries about him.

  • Steps to an Ecology of Mind: Collected Essays in Anthropology, Psychiatry, Evolution, and Epistemology.
  • Mind and Nature: A Necessary Unity (Advances in Systems Theory, Complexity, and the Human Sciences).
  • A Sacred Unity: Further Steps to an Ecology of Mind
  • Angels Fear: Towards an Epistemology of the Sacred.
  • Communication: The Social Matrix of Psychiatry

 

GB used concepts of Cybernetics and Systems Theory to seek integration among:

  • Aesthetics
  • Consciousness
  • Sacred
  • Ecology

I have found book A Recursive Vision to be most helpful in understanding GB.
