Newly Published Work // Essay on “New” Alfred Korzybski Transcript

Just now coming out is a new essay of mine published in ETC: A Review of General Semantics, Volume 68, Number 2. The essay–titled “Introduction to ‘Difficulties in Learning to Apply General Semantics'”–is a companion piece to a transcript I edited of a recording of Alfred Korzybski from 1947. That transcript follows my introductory essay and had never before been published, essentially making for “new” Alfred Korzybski work over 61 years after his death.
