General Semantics: The Next Generation 1

Nicholas Johnson2

Thank you, Jeff. 3

It is a great honor to be asked to deliver this year's Alfred Korzybski Memorial Lecture--by my count the forty-fourth in this series. It is also a great pleasure for me, and not just a little nostalgic, to have been able to visit with a number of you earlier at this conference.


ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

Many of you here have devoted years of your life to the study, application, and teaching of the principles of general semantics which Korzybski developed and shared with us in his lecturing and writing, most especially the classic Science and Sanity. 4

For that, I thank all of you. Especially are you to be congratulated for the cooperation that exists today among the Institute of General Senuntics; 5 the International Society for General Semantics; 6 and all the other related organizations, study groups, and publications.

But for the arrangements for this lecture I specifically want to thank those with whom I have been in contact: Charlotte Read, 7 who sent me the invitation last February; Marjorie Zelner, 8 who has handled so many details with professional skill between then and now; and Alexej Ugrinsky, 9 who extracted a title for this talk from me early enough for it to be included in your program.

I would also like to acknowledge the presence this evening of the remainder of the sum total of the Wendell and Edna Johnson offspring: my beloved sister Kate Johnson, who lives here in New York City.
