A Bateson Quote

I'm doing some cleanup work entering notes into Reference Manager which caused me to pickup my copy of Bateson's Mind and Nature: A Necessary Unity. In reading the introduction again I was struck by a quote and thought I would share it with you:

There seems to be something like a Gresham's law of cultural evolution according to which the oversimplified ideas will always displace the sophisticated and the vulgar and then hateful will always displace the beautiful. And yet the beautiful persists (p. 5).

Ahhh so true. I wish I had more time to read Bateson and contemplate his work. I always find my interludes with it to be very thought provoking and insightful. This books and Steps to an Ecology of Mind would definitely be on my short list for books I would want to take to a desert island.

Reference List:

Bateson, Gregory (1972). Steps to an Ecology of Mind. Chicago IL: The University of Chicago Press.

Bateson, Gregory (2002). Mind and Nature: A Necessary Unity. Cresskill NJ: Hampton Press.
