Call for Papers & Paper Proposals: Edited Collection on Alfred Korzybski and His Ideas

29 Mar 2010 2:26 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

In response to the resurgence of scholarly interest in the ideas and writings of Alfred Korzybski, Corey Anton and Lance Strate are pleased to announce a call for papers for a forthcoming edited book to be published by the Institute of General Semantics.

The edited collection, tentatively titled Korzybski and…, will feature some of today’s leading scholars and will explore and address the continued relevance of Korzybski and his practical system of general semantics.

The editors are especially interested in papers that draw out connections, points of convergence and/or divergence between Korzybski and particular thinkers, scholarly traditions, and research methodologies. Example topics or chapters include:

  • Korzybski and Marshall McLuhan
  • Korzybski and Martin Heidegger
  • Korzybski and Kenneth Burke
  • Korzybski and Transactional Psychology
  • Korzybski and Logic
  • Korzybski and Stoicism
  • Korzybski and Postmodernity

The editors welcome creative and innovative projects and are happy to consider alternative suggestions and proposals that address the continued relevance of Korzybski and General Semantics.

Prospective authors should submit completed papers, extended abstracts, or interesting papers proposals, as well as a copy of current CV to Corey Anton (antonc[at]gvsu.edu) and Lance Strate (strate[at]fordham.edu) by August 31, 2010.
