Open peer commentary on the article “Metalogue: How to Understand Bateson? In Memoriam Graham Barnes (1936-2020)” by Graham Barnes & Miran Možina. Abstract: Inspired by the exquisite invitation to join the flow of metalogue between two psychotherapists, teachers and cyberneticians, I reflect on a few chosen elements in their story. The ecology of relationships is suggested as a possible pattern that connects conversational partners who touch upon many topics and perspectives while contemplating on how to understand Bateson.
