Title: Korzybski And.

Binding: Paperback

Book Condition: New

Book Type: Paperback

Description:

Paperback. 323 pages. In this volume, Corey Anton and Lance Strate have carefully crafted a collection of comparisons of Korzybskis thoughts to other key philosophers and their ideas. Media, semiotics, imagination, rational thought, cultural studies, and cyberculture are only a sample of the many stimulating topics that come to life in this book. . . With freshness and vision, this edited collection takes us on a thought-provoking journey connecting us to the essence of Korzybskis contribution. I found it to be a thoroughly enjoyable read. -Karen Lollar Ph. D. Chair, Communication Arts and Sciences Metropolitan State University of Denver Author of The Talk Within: Its Central Role in Communication (2012) The collection of essays contained within this book represent a gallant and exquisite attempt to backtrack, as well as to sidetrack and track ahead, and show how Alfred Korzybskis enterprise is indeed aligned not only with various strains and traditions in academic thought and scholarship, but with the work of a host of significant theorists from across the disciplines. As such Corey Anton, Lance Strate, and their contributors have done a great service to Korzybskis legacy, and to the continuation and expansion of general semantics as both an applied and a theoretical system. They have positioned Korzybski and his work as a locus, rather than an outlier. -Thom Gencarelli, Manhattan College Corey Anton and Lance Strate have assembled a wild variety of 16 erudite essays demonstrating the past, present and continuing influence and relevance of Korzybskian general semantics. Academic specialists from diverse fields explore the connections, intersections, and divergences between general semantics and assorted topics ranging from phenomenology to psychotherapy to philosophy; from Heinlein to Hayakawa to Heidegger; from matters of time and temporality to the nature of human happiness. Korzybski And . . . is a collection not to be missed, an example of time-binding at its finest. -Jacqueline Rudig, IGS Past Vice-President This item ships from multiple locations.

"Corey Anton and Lance Strate have assembled a 'wild variety' of 16 erudite essays demonstrating the past, present and continuing influence and relevance of Korzybskian general semantics. Academic specialists from diverse fields explore the "connections, intersections, and divergences" between general semantics and assorted topics ranging from phenomenology to psychotherapy to philosophy; from Heinlein to Hayakawa to Heidegger; from matters of time and temporality to the nature of human happiness. "Korzybski And ..." is a collection not to be missed, an example of time-binding at its finest."
