About the Author

Yoni Van Den Eede is Lecturer and Researcher in Philosophy at the Free University of Brussels, Belgium. He is the author of Amor Technologiae: Marshall McLuhan as Philosopher of Technology.


"This book offers a thorough and well-researched dive into Bateson's thinking on purpose, instrumentalism, technology, and epistemology. It is an important contribution to the discourse on AI and on the rapid development of the tech sector. Philosophically the book tackles difficult systemic questions about technology and addresses them at a much more sophisticated level than most books of its kind." — Nora Bateson, The International Bateson Institute
