A General-Semantics Glossary:
Pula's Guide for the Perplexed

Robert P. Pula

 


Every serious student of general semantics should read this book. Pula’s Glossary is a very important contribution to general semantics.

- Gregory Sawin,
Editor, Thinking & Living Skills: General Semantics for Critical Thinking

 

Since the publication of Alfred Korzybski's Science and Sanity in 1933, general semantics students and teachers could have benefited from a book of clear but rigorous explanations of general semantics formulations and terminology.

Robert Pula, former lead lecturer at the Institute of General Semantics, is eminently qualified as the author of this book.

An excerpt from Pula's guide:

abstracting: A most useful thing to do when first encountering the term abstracting as used in general-semantics is to divest yourself of your accustomed reactions to the term as used in the culture-at-large. In Korzybski’s system, abstracting represents so much more than and so much that is different from what it does in everyday (and legal, philosophical, and aesthetic) vocabularies, that clinging to those usages may block you from appreciating what Korzybski intended.
