Our Own Metaphor: A Personal Account of a Conference on the Effects of Conscious Purpose on Human Adaptation

Bateson, Mary Catherine

Our Own Metaphor, now being re-issued by Hampton Press, provide an approach to the basic question of whether humans, with their increasingly powerful technologies, will ultimately destroy the environment on which they depend or prove capable of a new level of adaptation. The book suggests that any solution to the world's myriad problems must be grounded in an empathetic understanding of systems - from the ecology of nature to the loving interdependence of families. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
