Alfred Korzybski

1879 - 1950

Korzybski was born in Poland to an aristocratic family and a long line of mathematicians, engineers and philosophers. While an intelligence officer in World War I he came to America. He studied Science and Philosophy then developed the theory of General Semantics. General Semantics opposed the outdated views of Aristotelian thinking habits and proposed that semantics or meanings had not to do with a single, static definition, but had to do with the whole realm of a person's interactions, awareness and history.
