Composing a life by Mary Catherine Bateson ( Book )
18 editions published between 1989 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This extraordinary book explores that act of creation that engages us all--the composition of our lives. Through the comparative biographies of herself and four of her close friends, Mary Catherine Bateson provides a fascinating framework for her inquiry into the creative potential of complex lives, where energies are not narrowly focused toward a single ambition but rather are continually refocused and redefined. Each of the women in Composing a Life faced discontinuity at periods in her life, yet was rich in professional achievement and personal relationships. Bateson's life-affirming conclusion is that life is an improvisational art form, and that the interruptions, conflicted priorities, and exigencies that are a part of all our lives can and should be seen as a source of wisdom. Important and empowering, Composing a Life will change lives

Angels fear : towards an epistemology of the sacred by Gregory Bateson ( Book )
26 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in English and Spanish and held by 925 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Angels Fear is the final sustained thinking of the great Gregory Bateson, written in collaboration with his anthropologist daughter, Mary Catherine Bateson. Here we have set out before us Bateson's natural history of the relationship between ideas. Gregory Bateson, one of the most influential and original thinkers of the 20th century, spent his life (he died in 1980 before completing this book) exploring the nature of mental process and its connection with the biological world. His search to fine "the pattern which connects all living things culminated in the writing he did for Angels Fear." "The book incorporates writing by both father and daughter, including essays written by Gregory in the last years before his death."--BOOK JACKET

Arabic language handbook by Mary Catherine Bateson ( Book )
14 editions published between 1967 and 2003 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The demand for information on learning Arabic has grown spectacularly as English-speaking people have come to realize how much there is yet to know about other parts of the world. It is fitting that this "Arabic Language Handbook", complementing Georgetown University Press' exceptional Arabic language textbooks, is the first in a new series: "Georgetown Classics in Arabic Language and Linguistics". Sparked by the new demand, this reprint of a genuinely "gold-standard" language volume provides a streamlined reference on the structure of the Arabic language and issues in Arabic linguistics, from dialectics to literature. Originally published in 1967, the essential information on the structure of the language remains accurate, and it continues to be the most concise reference summary for researchers, linguists, students, area specialists, and others interested in Arabic

La peur des anges : Vers une épistémologie du sacré by Gregory Bateson ( Book )
15 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Pourquoi avons-nous encore besoin de la religion? Telle est la question que se pose Gregory Bateson dans ce livre, au terme d'un parcours qui l'a conduit de la biologie à l'anthropologie, et de l'éthologie à la psychiatrie ... Nous avons besoin du discours religieux parce qu'il décrit le monde comme un système et comme une totalité, et aussi parce qu'il est le seul discours qui sache préserver le sacré. En même temps, la religion suppose un Esprit suprême séparé du monde, alors que notre tâche est précisément, aujourd'hui, de tenter de dépasser la coupure qu'a opérée la pensée occidentale entre le corps et l'esprit. La religion est donc à la fois dans l'illusion et dans la vérité : elle est, pour Bateson, une métaphore. Mais comment dire autrement ("scientifiquement") ce dont elle est la métaphore?"
