Gregory Bateson. For a while, this book lived in my laptop bag because every time I would pick it up I would get so much out of it. The patterns that connect, the double bind, type 2 learning, etc. All huge and all will blow your mind.

In here, Louis Kauffman, talks about Virtual Logic and it is a great piece. You would have thought this to be in the Heinz von Foerster issue of the journal but it appears here. I once sat through a seminar with Louis Kauffman and asked a few questions. The guy took in the question like a school boy so exited to find the answer and although he did not know the answer right away, in a few minutes he had the proof on the board. Gregory Bateson taught us all how to be bright eyed school boys.
