The Institute of General Semantics offers an array of activities, publications, and awards that broaden the reach and understanding of general semantics.
Headquartered in New York City, the Institute of General Semantics is a member-supported, not-for-profit corporation established by Alfred Korzybski in 1938. The Institute currently publishes the quarterly journal ETC: A Review of General Semantics, and it sponsors the prestigious Alfred Korzybski Memorial Lecture Series.
From its famed Alfred Korzybski Memorial Lecture Series, to symposia and classes on general semantics, to periodicals and books from our publishing arm, to distinguished awards for people and works that promote the interests of general semantics, the Institute of General Semantics provides rich material and recognition to further and deepen the appreciation of general semantics.
The New Non-Aristotelian Library, the publishing arm of the Institute of General Semantics, publishes books, guides, anthologies, and ebooks on general semantics and related subjects. Our books are available for purchase in the IGS Store.
