The author identifies, in the lack of an intermediate theoretical apparatus between the epistemological matrix and clinic, the reason why the former systemic-relational psychotherapists could not transfer in their professional practice the complex, elegant and revolutionary character given to the approach by its epistemological matrix: Gregory Bateson’s ecology of the mind. He recalls Gregory Bateson’s theory of mind - which is an integral and inseparable part of that epistemological matrix - in particular he recalls some of the cornerstones of the theory and he points out the clinical implications of referring to it. He finally considers how the emergence of the paradigm of complexity in science and the advent of second order cybernetics facilitate the reference to Gregory Bateson’s theory of mind and how this can in turn facilitate the connection between epistemology and clinic.
Keywords: Epistemology, theory of mind, clinic, Bateson
