As one of the first cyberneticists, Bateson shows how the mind consists of a series of relationships, and goes on to point out that any instance of these same relationships in nature (such as in a plant or animal) may also be said to exhibit mind/5. The author provides a biological approach to the investigation of mind and cognition in nature.

SUMMARY (ENTIRE BOOK) A collection of essays by prominent physicists, biologists, geneticists, zoologists, philosophers and other thinkers about the relationship between science and philosophy, particularly the teleological versus the mechanistic explanation of the universe.

Special emphasis is given to the writings of Alfred North Whitehead and Process Theology. This book explains the relationship between intelligence and environmental complexity, and in so doing links philosophy of mind to more general issues about the relations between organisms and environments, and to the general pattern of 'externalist' : Peter Godfrey-Smith.

The book covers topics in biosemiotics, philosophy of mind, and the origins of life. Broadly, the book seeks to naturalistically explain " aboutness ", that is, concepts like intentionality, meaning, normativity, purpose, and function; which Deacon groups together and labels as ententional : Terrence W.

Deacon. In The Mind in Nature, C.B. Martin provides a staunchly realist account of the world as a united system incorporating both the mental and the physical.

Martin, an original and influential exponent of 'ontologically serious' metaphysics, echoes Locke's dictum that 'all things that exist are only particulars', arguing that properties are powerful qualities.

This classic book summarizes Gregory Bateson's thinking on the subject of the patterns that connect living beings to each other and to their environment.

Bateson's classic transdisciplinary work presents us with tools of thought, and explores the presuppositions of science and everyday life. This book has influenced scholars in disciplines as diverse as biology, management theory.
