Angels Fear: Towards an Epistemology of the Sacred

Front Cover
Macmillan, 1987 - Philosophy - 224 pages
This book contains Gregory Bateson's final sustained thinking in collaboration with his anthroplogist daughter Mary Catherine Bateson. The work sets out Bateson's natural history of the relationship between ideas. One of the most influential thinkers of the 20th century, Bateson spent his life exploring the nature of the mental process and its connection with the biological world. His search to find "the pattern which connects" all living things culminated in this book. It is an attempt by the Batesons to find a view of the mind and the universe that is neither mechanistic nor supernatural. ISBN 0-0-02-507670-1 : $18.95.
