About This Item

Lakeville, Connecticut: International Non-Aristotelian Library, 1980. Classic highly acclaimed text presents a detailed and complex compilation of the author's preeminent multidisciplinary work in the field of general semantics, including his theory of humankind: mankind as a time-binding class of life. Korzybski's work held a view that human beings are limited in what they know by the structure of their nervous systems, and the structure of their languages. Human beings cannot experience the world directly, but only through their "abstractions" (nonverbal impressions or "gleanings" derived from the nervous system, and verbal indicators expressed and derived from language). Sometimes our perceptions and our languages actually mislead us as to the "facts" with which we must deal. Our understanding of what is going on sometimes lacks similarity of structure with what is actually going on. He stressed training in awareness of abstracting, using techniques that he had derived from his study of mathematics and science. He called this awareness, this goal of his system, "consciousness of abstracting." Includes a new preface by Russell Meyers. 806 pgs. Illustrated. Gilt spine. Minimal shelfwear.. Fourth Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. .
