Pretty snazzy, huh? Special thanks to Peter Darnell and Visible Works Design on that.
This book represents the launching of the New Non-Aristotelian Library series, for which Corey Anton is the General Editor, and this new edition includes forewords from Corey and myself, a new introduction from Korzybski biographer Bruce Kodish, and the addition of an abridged version of the preface Robert P. Pula wrote for the Fifth Edition of the unabridged work (yes, there have been five editions of Science and Sanity, which means that Selections needs three more to catch up!).
And here's a bit more about the book:
Selections from Science and Sanity represents Alfred Korzybski's authorized abridgement of his magnum opus, Science and Sanity: An Introduction to Non-Aristotelian Systems and General Semantics. This second edition, published in response to the recent Korzybski revival, adds new introductory material and a revised index, providing an accessible introduction to Korzybski's arguments concerning the need for a non-Aristotelian approach to knowledge, thought, perception, and language, to coincide with our non-Newtonian physics and non-Euclidean geometries, to Korzybski's practical philosophy, applied psychology, pragmatics of human communication, and educational program. Selections from Science and Sanity serves as an excellent introduction to general semantics as a system intended to aid the individual's adjustment to reality, enhance intellectual and creative activities, and alleviate the many social ills that have plagued humanity throughout our history.
As for ordering a copy, you can get it from the Institute of General Semantics Store, or online from any major bookseller. Below are direct links to get the book from Amazon, if you care to:
It's quite a selection, indeed, if I do say so myself.
