Composing a life by Mary Catherine Bateson( Book )

33 editions published between 1989 and 2019 in 5 languages and held by 1,568 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 )

52 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,002 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."--Jacket

Arabic language handbook by Mary Catherine Bateson( Book )

21 editions published between 1967 and 2004 in English and held by 462 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

Willing to learn : passages of personal discovery by Mary Catherine Bateson( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection can be read as a memoir of unfolding curiosity. It brings together essays and occasional pieces, some as new as today's news, many of them previously unpublished or unknown to readers who know Bateson only from her books, written over the course of an unconventional career. the connections and echoes among the selections in Willing to Learn are as intriguing as the contrasts in style and subject matter. The work is grounded in cultural anthropology but shaped by the observation that, in a world of rapid change and encounters with strangers, individuals can no longer depend on following traditionally defined paths."--BOOK JACKET
The anthropologist( Visual )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the core of The Anthropologist are the parallel stories of two women: Margaret Mead, who popularized cultural anthropology in America; and Susie Crate, an environmental anthropologist currently studying the impact of climate change. Uniquely revealed from their daughters' perspectives, Mead and Crate demonstrate a fascination with how societies are forced to negotiate the disruption of their traditional ways of life, whether through encounters with the outside world or the unprecedented change wrought by melting permafrost, receding glaciers and rising tides."--Publisher website
