Angel's Fear: Towards an Epistemology of the Sacred
Gregory Bateson, Mary Catherine Bateson
Bantam Books, 1988 - 224 pagina's
Here is the long-awaited final work of one of the twentieth century's greatest thinkers. In this groundbreaking book, Gregory Bateson and his daughter, the eminent anthropologist Mary Catherine Bateson, offer a radically new theory of science, supernaturalism and the sacred -- and their relationship with the biological world. Building on the theories in Bateson's classic Mind and Nature, Angels Fear goes beyond that milestone work, incorporating Bateson's last essays and a series of imagined father-daughter conversations -- "Metalogues" -- to further explore the universal "pattern which connects" all living things.
