Okay, that's it, it's time for me to start reading Korzybski. David, where would you recommend I start?

Post Re: Different Languages and Clear Thinking
First of all, I don't recommend reading Science & Sanity to start with. It took me 3 different attempts spread over a period of 50 odd years before I could make it through. Eventually, however, you will have to do it. (It's available at the IGS store through the link below)

I will put together a few articles that I have collected over the last few years and post them where you can get to them. I've got a list of 30 or so that I'll have to go through and find what I think would be useful. That will take a couple of days.

I would suggest that you take a look at the website of the Institute of General Semantics
and take a look at the 'GS Learning Center' as well as the other sections.

That's very (and typically) generous of you, David.

So Clinton was right: "It depends what the meaning of 'is' is."

I have put together a series of articles about General Semantics.

It is located at

I have moved it to the bottom of the left-hand pane.

All of these are in PDF and will open in a new tab or new page depending
on how you are set to open them. If your browser is set to download instead
of opening, then the article will be in your 'Downloads' folder most likely.

Thank you for that page, David; I've read a number of these articles now and I think I will look for some background on the connection between GS and NeuroLinguistic Programming, since it is immediately apparent that GS is a precursor or heavy influence upon. NLP. And I have a certification in NLP from Grinder.

It is certainly a shame that Heinlein did not write articles about GS, since they would undoubtedly have been far more accessible than Korzybski's writings. It's also clear to me that with a shift of a few decades, Heinlein would have been incorporating NLP instead into his fiction.
