Schismogenesis and schismogenetic processes: Gregory Bateson reconsidered.

Publikation: KonferencebidragPaperForskning

Resumé

The main point I argue here is that Bateson’s concept of schismogenesis is indeed a useful concept cutting across the social sciences that uniquely relates to both social and personal pathologies. I briefly introduce Bateson’s notion of schismogenesis and even more briefly situate it with respect to Bateson’s work and the larger context in which he developed this concept. I further discuss how the application of schismogenesis within the field of politics has been somewhat neglected; I will here indicate some ways in which the concept is indeed useful for the analysis of politics/ political conflict.
