Format: Paperback
Ecological understanding is a must for all generations. For those with the courage to think through the implications of an ecological world view and want to learn the scientific concepts which help facilitate greater understanding of natural systems, leading to (hopefully) better decisions regarding resource use, this is a great book. By tackling recursion and non-linear causation at multiple time scales and cognitive levels, Harrie-Jones helps enrich the recuriveness of population level learning. Bateson was, NO DOUBT, one of the most challenging thinkers of his generation. Struggling at all times to keep his focus on how to make nature and communication more intelligible to more people so that they would have the tools and wisdom to see the consequences of their action on both other people and the planet. Rigorous and enchanting cognitive medicine for all those working to make a better world.

The best explanation of Gregory Bateson's ideas I have read! An amazing achievement by Peter Harries-Jones! Understand mind in Nature or be doomed! Politics must become aesthetic & beautiful for the optimal survival of humans on Earth or space. Continues examples of nature of autopoeisis, artificial life, Varela & Maturana, and interesting ideas about consciousness in biology... very good on showing biology as closed 'information' systems. A real ecological understanding!

This is an excellent advanced overview of Bateson's ideas.It fully reviews and assesses Bateson's core conceptual contribution.I really gained a lot more insight into Bateson by reading it;it made me want to go back and reread all of his works.
