Science and Sanity: An Introduction to Non-Aristotelian Systems and General Semantics

By Alfred Korzybski | Go to book overview

SUPPLEMENTARY BIBLIOGRAPHY TO THE SECOND EDITION
The following bibliography is only illustrative of points made in the introduction to the second edition. A number of volumes listed here give extensive bibliographies in their fields. For instance, the book of Dr. Dunbar has 130 pages of bibliography which cover 2,358 items. Some of the most important and latest empirical data on electrical brain-waves, electro-physiology, conditional reactions in humans, electro- colloidal processes of the nervous system, experimental neuroses and psychoses in animals, the reactions of apes, data on human psychotherapy, the methods of deception and sensory misdirection as utilized by magicians, etc., are given mostly in technical journals and monographs, and the interested reader may find them in libraries.This applies also to the many applications of the methods of general semantics in education, mental hygiene, speech difficulties, etc., carried on in universities and colleges, as well as applications in the practice of physicians, including psychiatrists; these are in preparation, or printed at present only by professional journals or by the Institute of General Semantics (see special list).I list also some new pertinent, professional publications such as Psychosomatic Medicine, Journal of Symbolic Logic, Encyclopedia of Unified Science, etc., without listing the titles of the individual contributions. It is suggested that the interested reader, and particularly educators, medical men, etc., become acquainted with such material, or at least know that it does exist. The reader is also referred to the foreword to the bibliography given on page 767, and the titles which follow.In science and life a great deal depends on proper evaluation, tested by predictability, which depends in turn on the similarity of structure between territory-map or fact-language. Thus, we have to know scientific facts, as well as the intricacies and difficulties of language and its structure. Fortunately there is a weekly Science News Letter, published by Science Service, Washington, D. C., giving brief, authoritative, non-technical factual summaries of progress in science, mathematics, medicine, etc., including sources, which every specialist as well as intelligent layman should know.
