I'd like to thank T.J. Olney for sparking my interest in Gregory Bateson.
His enormous compilation _Steps to an Ecology of Mind_ (1987. Jason Aronson
Inc. New Jersey) has been lengthy, difficult to comprehend in parts, but
still fascinating. I kinda like his take on Jung's pleroma / creatura
distinction stemming from J.'s epistemological crisis (aka creative illness)
and the way it allied with Kant's phenomenal / noumenal distinction. I'll
probably not look at the opaque *Septem Sermones ad Mortuos* the same again.
I'm just starting Adam Kuper's _The Chosen Primate_ (1994. Harvard
University Press. Cambridge, Massacusetts). Some of you may be familiar with
Kuper's contribution "If memes are the answer, what is the question?" in the
recent compilation _Darwinizing Culture_ (2000. Oxford University Press.
Oxford. edited by Robert Aunger).
