有意识的目的与自然，基本上被认为是格雷戈里·贝特森1968年在伦敦发表的演讲。在这个有意识的目的与自然的讲座中，格雷戈里·贝特森的主要目标是强调和评估我们文明的根源。人们已经看到，格列高利分析了三种不同的主要古代文明，这些文明在过去，如罗马、希伯莱和希腊文，对人类起源有重大影响。此外，格雷戈里·贝特森在这次演讲中提到的另一个主要原因是，通过这次讨论，格列高利想要解决罗马人和巴勒斯坦人之间的冲突。在贝特森的演讲中，他指出，他的目标是讨论过去罗马尼亚人和巴勒斯坦人所面临的优势和问题。在他的演讲中，贝特森最重要的一点是，他对古代罗马-巴勒斯坦制度(Bateson 432- 445)中盛行的病态和独特性持中立态度。
Conscious Purpose versus Nature is basically considered to be one of the lectures that were delivered by Gregory Bateson in the year 1968 in London. In this lecture of Conscious Purpose versus Nature, the main aim of Gregory Bateson was to focus on highlighting and evaluating the roots of our civilization. It has been seen that Gregory analyzed three different major ancient civilizations which have significantly affected human origin in the past such as Roman, Hebrew and Greek. Moreover, another major reason that has been identified behind the deliverance of this lecture by Gregory Bateson is that through this discussion, Gregory was looking to fight out the conflict that has been prevailing between the Romans and the Palestinians. In the lecture of Bateson, it was identified that he has aimed at discussing the advantages and problems which have been faced by people of Romanians and Palestinians in the past. The most important aspect of Bateson in his lecture is that he has remained neutral in the opinions about the pathologies and peculiarities that prevailed in the ancient Romano-Palestinian system (Bateson 432-445).
