Teaching writing through general semantics and general semantics through writing: a stylistic approach In addition to being of interest to media ecologists and general semanticists, this stimulating and provocative book should have great appeal for scholars and students in the areas of semiotics, rhetorical theory, orality/ literacy studies.

General semantics, a philosophy of language-meaning that was developed by Alfred Korzybski (–), a Polish-American scholar, and furthered by S.I. Hayakawa, Wendell Johnson, and others; it is the study of language as a representation of reality. Korzybski’s theory was intended to improve the habits of response to g upon such varied disciplines as relativity theory.

semantics [Gr.,=significant] in general, the study of the relationship between words and meanings. The empirical study of word meanings and sentence meanings in existing languages is a branch of linguistics; the abstract study of meaning in relation to language or symbolic logic systems is a branch of philosophy.

If attacked, the master is. GENERAL SEMANTICS AS CRITICAL THINKING: A Personal View The various articles collected by Mary Morain in Bridging Worlds Through General Semantics attempt to illustrate the principles of general semantics in different aspects and disciplines of life.

We ought to presuppose from Morain's title that worlds and cultures and people can be more easily connected through the use of general semantics. General semantics in general and the extensional devices in particular can help us approach listening in a way that is more sane, as Korzybski would say.

Actually, using them aloud in everyday speech, or except as a critical device in writing, would cause many people to view the communicator askance.

General semantics is a self-improvement and therapy program begun in the s that seeks to regulate human mental habits and behaviors. After partial launches under the names human engineering and humanology, Polish-American originator Alfred Korzybski (–) fully launched the program as general semantics in with the publication of Science and Sanity: An Introduction to Non.

The term general semantics was introduced by Alfred Korzybski in the book "Science and Sanity" (). In his Handbook of Semiotics (), Winfried Nöth observes that "General Semantics is based on the assumption that historical languages are only inadequate tools for the cognition of reality, are misleading in verbal communication, and may Author: Richard Nordquist.

It is concerned with, among other things, language and other symbols. It emphasizes the role language plays in our sanity, through our evaluation and knowledge processes.
