Video Presentation // “Extensional Devices Revisited”

Today, at the 2020 General Semantics Symposium hosted by the Institute of General Semantics, my video presentation titled “Extensional Devices Revisited” was released.

The presentation gives a brief overview of general semantics and its founder Alfred Korzybski’s vision, mentions five linguistic devices he recommended for making one’s language more correspondent with empirical reality, and introduces two new extensional devices to the list.

The 15-minute video was uploaded to the IGS YouTube channel here.

This morning I found out that one of my SlateShots — a very short introductory clip tailored to masthead an Actors Access profile — was chosen for the first ever ActorIntro SlateShot Hall of Fame.
