Open peer commentary on the article “Metalogue: How to Understand Bateson? In Memoriam Graham Barnes (1936-2020)” by Graham Barnes & Miran Možina. Abstract: Barnes and Možina’s metalogue is a good example of what a psychotherapeutic conversation should look like to enable the creation of new meanings both for the psychotherapist and the client, rather than imposing concepts that stem from a given psychotherapeutic theory. Barnes and Možina have conversed in such a way that their exchange was about the topic of conversation as well as about their relationship.
