Gregory Bateson?

Recommended Posts

Having recently completed Runaway: Gregory Bateson, the Double Bind, and the Rise of Ecological Consciousness, by Anthony Chaney, I am thinking that I will really appreciate Gregory Bateson's ideas directly. Has anyone else read any of his work?

For example, 

  • Steps to an Ecology of Mind
  • Mind and Nature
  • Angels Fear: Towards an Epistemology of the Sacred 

Interested in hearing others' perspectives.

Hi! I'm reading now “Steps to an Ecology of Mind”. I don't have much time to read stuff, lately, but I'll try to keep you updated.

After reading the introduction, I'm struck with some unexpected parallelism between this book and GEB (another one that I've yet to finish reading). I can also sense some connection with N.N Taleb's thesis. It's like the old saying: “great minds, think alike”.

GEB is Godel, Escher, Bach? A neat coincidence that you're reading Steps... because I also have a copy on my Kindle that I'm intending to read. However, it's in PDF form, and I am unable to zoom in on the text...makes for some pretty long and challenging pages. I might persevere, though...

Yes, exactly that. The most dense boom I’ve ever encountered.
