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.

I honestly do not know when I will finish reading such a thick book. Perhaps I should have bought the shorter paperback version.
An interesting view that is not to be overlooked. We see this in any fields and some of us embrace the change and see how infinite our views can still work; others of us resist knowing that there is something fundamentally wrong if you can not put your finger on it.
Korzybski opens up our mind and world to the possibilities of Non-Aristotellian systems and general semantics. This is an important, yet often overlooked book.
It deserves more attention than it has so far had, and it deserves to be in a wider readership than as a source book for neuro-linguistic programming NLP The message of this book is important and can be summarised to the classic quote, "The map is not the territory, it is a representation of the territory and useful in so far as it corresponds to the territory" The book is the great statement of non-identity- the description of a thing or process is not the thing or process itself.
The book makes the argument fully, but sadly like Merleau-Ponty's "The Phenomenology of Perception" it's message is often lost amidst linguistic complexity. This book is important, it does make a worthwhile argument, and it is a basic resource for those interested in NLP, general semantics and neuro-semantics. The message from this book deserves to reach a bigger audience. The book is worth reading, but you will need persistence and concentration to get the message out of it. Absolutely stunning.
I really cannot use enough superlatives to describe the effect this book has had on my life. I have seen it described as difficult to read, and I admit that at first glance it can seem daunting. But investing some time and effort in trying to internalise what Korzybski says can have dramatic effects on your quality of life. I would advise that you read it once, and don't worry too much if you don't understand long passages.
On the second time of reading, some of those passages begin to make sense, and you get an inkling of the importance of what he says. I read it twice, starting again as soon as I had finished. I intend to read it again soon, once I have given my brain a chance to mull over the new information I have presented for it's delectation. As a general formula, the more you read this book, the greater benefit you derive from it.
With Science and Sanity, Alfred Korzybski presents a system of thought that he claims can make humanity 'sane'. To evaluate such a claim, which has profound implications for humanity, you must read the book and decide for yourself. Don't listen to the propaganda. By examining our language, and it's underlying Aristotelian metaphysics, he illustrates that the structure of our nervous systems does not correspond to the structure of our language, leading to a serious discrepancy that causes 'un-sanity'.
Put simply, our language cannot cope with 'reality'. Since we rely on language to think and evaluate, WE cannot cope with reality. The solution? Change our language. Rather than base our language on Aristotelian 'metaphysics', which means only that we base our language on the physics of Ancient Greece, let us base our language on modern physics, which denies the existence of an objective reality. How can we talk in a language that implies an 'objective reality' when our most learned scientists deny the meaningfulness of such a phrase?
Science and Sanity has changed my life for the better, and I was already enjoying myself! I urge you to read this book. Then read it again, and again, and again, and again, then tell all your friends about it and get them to read it!
Honestly, you will not regret it. Andrzej Gorecki, the author of 'South of the 60th Parallel'. 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.
Like any paradigm shifter, it requires repeated reads, to infuse the mind with a different better perception of reality. Once this occurs, your world will never be the same. If you want to better understand yourself and those around you, seriously consider reading this book. If you work as a scientist then every day you spend without having read it will be a waste.

The fundamental, irreplaceable exposition of general semantics. In this work Korzybski developed important lines of formulating neglected by subsequent authors. A must-have for the student of general semantics interested in the original formulations of Alfred Korzybski. In general semantics we are concerned with the sanity of the race, including particularly methods of prevention; eliminating from home, elementary, and higher education inadequate aristotelian types of evaluation which too often lead to the un-sanity of the race, and building up for the first time a positive theory of sanity, as a workable non-aristotelian system.

The book, or books to be correct are nearly a pages and Science and sanity book by: science and sanity is actually the antidote to many philosophies that uses confusions in their understanding of language to create meaningless questions, and respond with meaningless answers.

Какая разница. Давай сотню песет. Обменные операции явно не относились к числу сильных сторон Двухцветного: сто песет составляли всего восемьдесят семь центов. - Договорились, - сказал Беккер и поставил бутылку на стол. Панк наконец позволил себе улыбнуться. - Заметано. - Ну вот и хорошо.
А метод грубой силы? - предложил Бринкерхофф. - Можно ли с его помощью найти ключ. Джабба всплеснул руками. - Ради всего святого.
Посмотри. Бринкерхофф растерянно постоял минутку, затем подбежал к окну и встал рядом с Мидж. Та показала ему последние строчки текста.
