Selections from Science and Sanity represents Alfred Korzybski's authorized abridgement of his magnum opus, Science and Sanity: An Introduction to Non-Aristotelian Systems and General Semantics. This second edition, published in response to the recent Korzybski revival, adds new introductory material and a revised index, providing an accessible introduction to Korzybski's arguments concerning the need for a non-Aristotelian approach to knowledge, thought, perception, and language, to coincide with our non-Newtonian physics and non-Euclidean geometries, to Korzybski's practical philosophy, applied psychology, pragmatics of human communication, and educational program. Selections from Science and Sanity serves as an excellent introduction to general semantics as a system intended to aid the individual's adjustment to reality, enhance intellectual and creative activities, and alleviate the many social ills that have plagued humanity throughout our history.

Science and Sanity may appear to be a difficult book to read and understand, but this stems from our per-conditioning and flawed perception that doesn’t take into account the role of our senses and the role of the human nervous system in connecting reality and our minds. Like any paradigm shifter, it requires repeated reads, to infuse the mind with a different (better) perception of reality. Once this occurs, your world will never be the same.
If you want to better understand yourself and those around you, seriously consider reading this book. If you work as a scientist then every day you spend without having read it will be a waste.
'Selections from Science and Sanity' provides convincing key points and postulates that lead way for a beneficial application of non-aristotelian systems. In other words, this book may change your life.
