Summary
"This intellectual biography covers the whole trajectory of Bateson's career, from his first anthropological work alongside Margaret Mead through the continuing relevance of his late forays into biosemiotics. Harris-Jones shows how the sum of Bateson's thinking across numerous fields turns our notions of causality upside-down, providing a moral divide between sustainable creativity and our current biocide."
