Bateson centennial and much interest is anticipated for his publications. This work is the final sustained thinking of Bateson. In collaboration with his daughter, Mary Catherine Bateson, this volume sets out Bateson's natural history of the relationship between ideas. The book incorporates writing by both father and daughter, including essays written by Bateson in the last years before his death. The book is a unique demonstration of thinking in progress.

Reviews

Bateson was working on this book when he died in 1980 but was nowhere near completing it; his daughter added chapters and other material that she is careful to identify as her own. Those looking for a neat, logical chain of argument will not find it here. Bateson combines ideas from a wide range of sourcescybernetics, communication theory, Jungian psychology, biology, philosophy, evolution theory, ethics, etc.in an attempt to bridge the gap between mind and matter, to present a unified view of nature and man. The discussion is suggestive but lacking in focus. Bateson's fans will love this; others may feel confirmed in their belief that his most important contribution lies elsewherein his theory of the ``double bind.'' Leon H. Brody, U.S. Office of Personnel Management Lib., Washington, D.C.
