General Semantics

by Eric

I suspect that many of my readers, and, indeed, many of the people I read, have never heard of Alfred Korzybski or General Semantics. I would highly recommend, before reading and commenting, that you familiarize yourself with the idea that the “map is not the territory” and the “word is not the thing”. Better yet, read some of Heinlein’s work. You can find more information at the links provided. You might also take a look at Eric Raymond’s The Utility of Mathematics for some insight into binary choice logic.
