Alfred Korzybski Quotes

Alfred Korzybski

Alfred Korzybski was a Polish-American philosopher, linguist, scientist, and layman in fields continuity, most notably through his theory of general semantics. He is most famous for his 1934 publication of Science and Sanity, where he introduced the idea of non-Aristotelian systems, and his notion that the structure of language affects our thinking and behavior. He is also credited for popularizing the notion of the map-territory analogy, which stresses that the map of psychological symbols can never stand for 'the whole of what is actually given in experience.'
