BeschreibungGregory Bateson's work, intensely interdisciplinary, even transdisciplinary, in character, continues to touch others in fields as diverse as communication and ecology, anthropology and philosophy, family therapy and education, and mental and spiritual health. Bateson's cybernetic epistemology forges a path of connection. The authors in this volume celebrate the Bateson Centennial, with contributions rooted in Bateson's ideas and ideals. Although their homes lie in different intellectual realms, their work embodies Bateson's interdisciplinary character. These essays offer both personal stories of Bateson's influence, while at the same time demonstrating opportunities for its extension, and can be read as a gift to a creative spirit on his 100th birthday.
