How language shapes thought – All In The Mind – ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

 

How language shapes thought – All In The Mind – ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation): “It’s been controversial for centuries but new empirical research suggests that language has a powerful influence over the way we think and perceive the world. Lera Boroditsky from Stanford University suggests that Japanese and Spanish speakers have a different sense of blame, and some Indigenous Australians have a different sense of space—all because of the language they speak.”

RET, Albert Ellis and general semantics

IGS Discussion Forums: Albert Ellis in the News:

Dr. Albert Ellis gave the Alfred Korzybski Memorial Lecture in 1991 in New York City. It was all about the parallels between his Rational-Emotive Therapy (RET) and General Semantics. He stated, “I was distinctly influenced, when formulating and developing RET, by several of Korzybski’s ideas.” (General Semantics Bulletin #58, p. 25)

Halfway between the poem and the paramecium

The dream is halfway between the poem and the paramecium. Like the paramecium, it is a product of nature, created not by man’s will. But like the poem, it is a product of art, dependent upon man’s imagination.

-James Hillman

Words, like angels, are powers which have invisible power over us.
