Editorial Reviews

Review

Helps to provide a foundation for the ecological consciousness that emerged from the counterculture ideas in the mid-20th century.--Library Journal

Review

This is a fascinating and ambitious study dealing with the cultural history of a concept--Gregory Bateson's double bind--as it emerged and wove its way through twentieth-century thought. In the process of narrating this complex intellectual and cultural history, Chaney draws upon not only Bateson's archive but a host of literary and scientific sources, demonstrating the shared influences and overlap between bodies of thought that to my knowledge have never been explored so deeply or with as much skill."—Frank Zelko, University of Vermont



This is a remarkable piece of work by a gifted scholar. Indeed, it is something of an intellectual page-turner. Chaney has managed throughout to convert abstract ideas into riveting narrative episodes. The book opens up windows onto both Bateson's psyche and the many worlds in which he moved, creatively reading a wide range of texts to reveal some of the deepest cultural and intellectual dynamics of the mid-twentieth century.--Andrew Jewett, Harvard University
