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

53 editions published between 1951 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 1,334 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

Angels fear : towards an epistemology of the sacred by Gregory Bateson( Book )

29 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in English and Spanish and held by 917 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

La nouvelle communication by Gregory Bateson( Book )

42 editions published between 1981 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 494 WorldCat member 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.]

Dance and trance of Balinese children( Visual )

5 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Documentary on the role of dance and trance in Balinese culture, with special attention to children's learning and participation. A personal perspective is provided by I Gusti Agung Ngurah Supartha, a master dancer and teacher attached to the Indonesian Embassy in Washington, D.C., who with his two daughters and two sons discusses, demonstrates, and performs various Balinese dances. Viewed in contemporary footage and in films made by Margaret Mead and Gregory Bateson in the l930s, dance is depicted as an important component in Balinese education, beginning in early childhood and continuing in the public schools and as an after-school activity. Trance dances, such as the kris dance for adults, are examined as an indicator of the intimate relationship of Balinese dance and religious practice. I Made Bandem, Made Kaler, and Dr. Milton H. Erickson comment on children's participation in trance dances. Trance dances are also discussed as tourist spectacles and the source of dances such as the legong. Supartha, a member of a family of dancers, recalls his own dance training with I Ketut Mario, who handed down his best-known dance, the kebyar duduk. In turn, Supartha's eldest son talks about the ramifications of retaining and sharing his Balinese heritage in the U.S. The future evolution of Balinese dance is represented by a deer dance created by Supartha, and a multicultural dance invented and performed by his daughters
An ecology of mind( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"... 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
