Another influential author was Korzybski, who in 1942 published Science and Sanity: An Introduction to Non-Aristotelian Systems and General Semantics. His now famous phrase, ‘the map is not the territory’, was used by Gregory Bateson as he developed ideas of the importance of both content and process in human communication. Bateson, an English-born anthropologist and ethnologist, recognized the application of these mathematical, engineering and biological concepts to the social and behavioural sciences and introduced the notion that a family could be viewed as a cybernetic system, particularly since by assuming social systems, like physical and mechanical systems, were rule governed, both the uniformity and variability of human behaviour could be accounted for.

In 1952 Jay Haley and John Weakland joined Bateson to study (with a Rockefeller Foundation grant) patterns and paradoxes in human and animal communication. In 1954 Don Jackson joined their research team and (with a Macy Foundation grant) they studied schizophrenic communication patterns and in 1956 published the seminal text ‘Towards a theory of schizophrenia’ (Bateson et al. 1956). He was also the first to formally and elegantly articulate the model of families as operating in an analogous way to homeostatic biological systems in his paper ‘The question of family homeostasis’ (Jackson 1957).
