Communication, the social matrix of psychiatry by Jurgen Ruesch( Book )

41 editions published between 1951 and 2008 in English and held by 1,146 WorldCat member 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

Was ist Kommunikation? Dieser Frage stellen sich der Psychiater Jürgen Ruesch und der Kulturanthropologe Gregory Bateson in ihrem zum Standardwerk gewordenen Buch. Eine Antwort finden sie bei der Betrachtung von gestörter Kommunikation: Nur wer Fehler korrigiert, kommuniziert. Unter dem Eindruck der Entwicklung von Informationstheorie, Kybernetik und Kybernetik zweiter Ordnung formulieren die beiden Autoren Anfang der 1950er Jahre einen Kommunikationsbegriff, der sämtliche Formen menschlichen Verhaltens vom einsamen Seelenleben" (Husserl) über körperliche Störungen bis zu zwischenmenschlichen Begegnungen und Kulturen abdeckt. Fast nebenbei entwickeln sie damit einen Begriff, der auf eine allgemeine Theorie des Verhaltens zielte. Ruesch und Bateson gehen davon aus, dass jede Kommunikation eine Auswahl aus verschiedenen Möglichkeiten darstellt, Ereignisse miteinander verknüpft und Getrenntes miteinander verbindet. Es kann nur miteinander kommunizieren, was anders nicht miteinander verbunden ist und sich zugleich wechselweise wahrnimmt. Kommunikation findet nur unter der Wahrnehmung statt, dass man selbst wahrgenommen wird und die eigene Wahrnehmung wahrgenommen wird. Diese Kriterien der Selektivität, Anschlussfindung und wechselseitigen Wahrnehmung fassen Ruesch und Bateson zu einem handlichen Kriterium zusammen, das überrascht: Kommunikation ist Fehlerkorrektur; Korrektur von Fehlern, die in der Kommunikation selbst begangen werden. Dabei ist dieser Kommunikationsbegriff nicht auf menschliche Kommunikation begrenzt. Es kommuniziert, was Fehler korrigiert. Geschrieben in der Pionierzeit der Kybernetik, als ein paar Querdenker das vorherrschende wissenschaftliche Weltbild revolutionierte, ist das Buch von Ruesch und Bateson längst ein Klassiker der systemischen Literatur!
