Seminar Summary - 19th October 2014


"ETC: A Review of General Semantics"
We'll have a little review of some recent works,
This is the Weekend Working Bee to sort out Laurie's books.

Led by Mr Robert James

We collected the ten or so boxes of Laurie Cox's books and audio tapes etc.  These materials were integrated into the AGS Library via a *** monster purge ***of the accumulated materials.  These will remain mostly with Gavan and Pauline at Bonnet Bay in Sydney, but there is a substantial collection with Robert and Jeanne in Canberra.

Lucky Tom in Melbourne will be receiving come of these goodies as well.

*** * ***

We spent some time on Marty Levinson's "Practical Fairy Tales for Everyday Living", considering how these may be a useful medium for proulgation of GS principles, in terms of the style and substance of this literature.

The collection of "ETC" journals was reviewed, and our indexes brought up-to-date.

Next Meeting:

Sunday 16 November 2014
"A Mind of its Own" book review
Review of Cordelia Fine’s book
“A Mind of its Own: How your Brain Distorts and Deceives”.
Come and learn more about our abstracting processes
from a non-GS viewpoint.
Led by Mr David Hewson

WritingThis is a "living document", subject to ongoing evolution as recollections re-emerge from our memories of the event, and are re-evaluated in light of ongoing experience and reflection.  It will never be "the full truth and nothing but the truth", or "a map that expresses everyone's notion of the territory"!
