Gregory Bateson is one of my favourite authors -- an anthropologist who took his knowledge of systems to help found cybernetics. They threw god out of the garden [via Heckler & Coch] are some of his letters on religion, worth a read if only because of their clarity in describing big ideas. However, what I really like is this line: "Norbert Wiener once described ants as 'cheap mass-produced articles'".
