Gregory Bateson was a philosopher, anthropologist, photographer, naturalist, and poet, as well as the husband and collaborator of Margaret Mead. With a new foreword by his daughter Mary Katherine Bateson, this classic anthology of his major work will continue to delight and inform generations of readers. "This collection amounts to a retrospective exhibition of a working life. . . . Bateson has come to this position during a career that carried him not only into anthropology, for which he was first trained, but into psychiatry, genetics, and communication theory. . . . He . . . examines the nature of the mind, seeing it not as a nebulous something, somehow lodged somewhere in the body of each man, but as a network of interactions relating the individual with his society and his species and with the universe at large."--D. W. Harding, "New York Review of Books" "[Bateson's] view of the world, of science, of culture, and of man is vast and challenging. His efforts at synthesis are tantalizingly and cryptically suggestive. . . .This is a book we should all read and ponder."--Roger Keesing, "American Anthropologist" Gregory Bateson (1904-1980) was the author of "Naven" and "Mind and Nature."


  • ベイトソンは後の時代から見れば今世紀最大の認識論者と称されても過言ではないくらい広大で先験的な認識をもっていた人です。あまり知られてはいませんが、ベイトソンは、60年代ウーマンリブ運動の先駆者であったマーガレットミードのhusbandです。本書は、彼の論文集の集大成であり、ほとんどすべての彼の哲学を実際に「習得できる」優れた本です。この本は90年に改訂されて以来バブルの影響で長らく手にいれることができなく、私自信も再販を待ち望んでいました。一読するとわかりますが、日常のちょっとした思考について、人類史をも揺るがす深い認識の転換を迫る本です。例えば、情報、ユーモア、コミュニケーション、遊びなど馴染みのある概念が、実は背後にある深遠な哲学的認識の対象となりえるだけでなく、それが実際に思考習慣として身につく本であると思います。
