ABOUT THIS BOOK:
This authorized biography of distinguished anthropologist and social scientist Gregory Bateson is a remarkable journey into the intellectual evolution of one of the twentieth century's most brilliant human scientists. Bateson, who is best known for his development of the double bind theory of schizophrenia, has conducted breakthrough work in a number of fields in addition to anthropology, has influenced such diverse figures as R.D. Laing, Erving Goffman, and Konrad Lorenz, and has shaped the direction of thought in many of the human sciences.(Publisher). Good / good. Item #12188
