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.

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.
