Communication, the social matrix of psychiatry by Jurgen Ruesch( Book )
53 editions published between 1951 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 1,303 libraries worldwide
The integration of psychiatry into the mainstream of American society following World War II involved rethinking and revision of psychiatric theories. While in the past, theories of personality had been concerned with the single individual, this pioneering volume argues that such theories are of little use. Instead, the individual must be seen in the context of social situations in which rapid advances in communication technology have brought people closer together, changing their behavior and self-expression. Ruesch and Bateson show that following World War II mass communication and culture have become so pervasive that no individual or group can escape their influences for long. Therefore, they argue that processes of psychoanalysis must now consider the individual within the framework of a social situation. Focusing upon the larger societal systems, of which both psychiatrist and patient are an integral part, they develop concepts that encompass large-scale events as well as happenings of an individual nature. They have outlined this relationship in a unified theory of communication, which encompasses events linking individual to individual, individual to the group, and ultimately, to events of worldwide concern. The term social matrix, then, refers to a larger scientific system, of which both the psychiatrist and the patient are integral parts. Jurgen Ruesch was professor of psychiatry at the University of California School of Medicine and director of the section of Social Psychiatry at the Langley Porter Neuropsychatric Institute in San Francisco. Gregory Bateson taught at Columbia University, the New School for Social Research, Harvard University, Stanford University, and the University of California, Santa Cruz. Among his books are Naven, Steps to an Ecology of Mind, Mind and Nature: A Necessary Unity, Angels Fear: Towards an Epistemology of the Sacred, and A Sacred Unity: Further Steps to an Ecology of
Angels fear : towards an epistemology of the sacred by Gregory Bateson( Book )

"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."--Jacket

45 editions published between 1981 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 523 libraries worldwide
Gregory Bateson. Erving Goffman. Edward T. Hall. Paul Watzlawick. Des noms auxquels s'accrochent des titres ou des idées-forces - la "double contrainte" (ou double bind), la "présentation de soi", la "dimension cachée", l'"école de Palo Alto", etc. Mais c'est à peu près tout. D'où viennent ces auteurs? En quoi sont-ils liés entre eux? Où et comment travaillent-ils? À ces questions, peu de réponses aisément accessibles. D'où la nécessité d'une introduction à ce vaste courant que l'on peut appeler celui de la "Nouvelle Communication" : la communication n'y est plus définie comme une simple affaire à deux, mais comme un système circulaire, un orchestre dont chacun fait partie et où tout le monde joue en suivant une partition invisible. Une ample introduction est ici suivie d'un choix de textes déjà classiques, puis d'entretiens où les auteurs expliquent de façon vivante leur démarche et leurs objectifs. [4e de couv.]

La communication chez les cétacés, la schizophrénie, la théorie de l'évolution : ce sont quelques-uns des domaines qu'explore Gregory Bateson dans ce second tome de Vers une écologie de l'esprit. Le lecteur y trouvera un exposé de la théorie du double bind (double contrainte), situation de communication où un individu reçoit à la fois deux injonctions contradictoires telles que, s'il obéit à l'une, il est forcé de désobéir à l'autre. Dans cette lignée, s'élabore une nouvelle conception de la communication et de l'évolution, qui renverse nombre d'idées reçues. Ce volume rassemble la deuxième partie de Forme et pathologie des relations (schizophrénie et double contrainte), qui comprend notamment le texte célèbre Vers une théorie de la schizophrénie; Biologie et évolution (changements somatiques, communication chez les cétacés, réexamen de la "loi de Bateson "); Épistémologie et écologie (cybernétique, but conscient, différence); et Crise dans l'écologie de l'esprit (pathologies de l'épistémologie, crise, civilisation urbaine).

" ... a portrait of Gregory Bateson, celebrated anthropologist, philosopher, author, naturalist, and systems theorist. His story is lovingly told by his youngest daughter, Nora, with footage from Gregory's own films shot in the 1930s with his wife Margaret Mead in Bali and New Guinea, along with photographs, filmed lectures, and interviews. Gregory Bateson was a man who studied the interrelationships of the complex systems we live in with scientific rigor and enormous integrity. His theories, such as "the double bind" and "the pattern which connects", continue to impact the fields of anthropology, psychiatry, information science, cybernetics, urban planning, biology, and ecology, challenging people to think in new ways. Through this film, Nora Bateson sets out to show that his ideas are not just fodder for academic theory, but can help instruct a way of life. She presents his thinking using a richly personal perspective, focusing on the stories Bateson used to present his ideas and how the beauty of life itself provided the framework of his life's pursuits."--Publisher's website
