Nora Bateson’s film ‘An Ecology of Mind’; both a memoir and a tribute to the work of her father Gregory Bateson.


Gregory Bateson was a great influence in the Solution Focused Brief Therapy development coming from a systemic approach. Love his quote: ‘The major problems in the world are the results of the difference of how nature works and the way people think’. I do like that very much.

An Ecology of Mind‘ is a filmic portrait of anthropologist, biologist, and psychotherapist Gregory Bateson. Bateson believed that, ‘The major problems in the world are the result of the difference between the way nature works and the way people think.’ Seen through the relationship between father and daughter, this documentary is an invitation into ‘systems thinking‘ and interrelationships in the natural world. ‘Looking at what holds systems together is a radical step toward sewing the world back together, from the inside.’
