    "Science and Sanity" is really a study in applied epistemology--how we know what we say we know given our human limits. As such Korzybski wanders over several fields of human knowledge but tries mostly to explain everything in terms of semantics of mathematics, science and psychology/5(21).   Free Online Library: A general semantics glossary.

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-Aristotelian Systems and General Semantics.

As a direct result of my exposure to general semantics, in conjunction with my own extensive mathematics, physics, engineering, military, and computer science backgrounds, I went into the study of philosophy with the explicit purpose of clarifying the theoretical foundations of general semantics.

Starting with Manhood of Humanity inAlfred Korzybski developed general semantics (GS), a system for helping humans move closer to a possible adulthood of humanity.

Initially his work gained widespread review and respect. Presently, his books remain in print and continue to sell well worldwide, as do other general-semantics Size: KB. • General semantics is the study of relations between symbol systems and nervous systems as expressed in behavior.

6 • General semantics is an up-to-date epistemology.1 • General semantics may be regarded as a systematic attempt to formulate the general method of science in such a way that it might be applied not. I was interested in semantics and "Science and Sanity" is a fully encompassing general text book on the subject.

It is a little dated in the terminology however as I have no previous education with semantics or psychology so I find it easy to understand, sometimes hard to read/5(43). I think Korzybski gives a good overview to the General Semantics explained in Science and Sanity. Moreover, he pays special attention at applying GS to the life of young students.

I read it when I was at half of Science and Sanity, and I think the lectures helped assimilate even more what I learnt from GS.5/5(4).GENERAL SEMANTICS. The term general semantics originated with Alfred Korzybski in as the name for a general theory of evaluation, which in application turned out to be an empirical science, giving methods for general human adjustment in our private, public, and professional study has led ultimately to the formulation of a new system, with general semantics as its modus operandi.The prefaces unveil the science of General Semantics, created by Korzybski.

The main body of the book then examines various branches of human knowledge through the prism of his concepts, covering areas such as: Anthropology, Biology, Education, Logic, Mathematics, Neurology, Physics and Physiology/5.
