"The Exhilaration and Challenges
of Applying our Learning of General Semantics"

We love to read the books, watch engaging presentations of great minds,
        nod wisely to things we agree with, and ignore those that we disagree with.
        But how does that move us forward and honour the tradition of time-binding?

Presenter: Robert James

"Baby Boomers in Popular Culture”

Do we sexagenarians/septuagenarians
think that it’s cool to use the expression “That’s cool”,
to show how trendy and with-it we are?
But that expression is already 50 years old!
How can we keep up with technology and dynamic culture,
and engage with our children and their children?
Are Korzybski’s extensional devices sufficient,
or do we need some new ones?

Presenter: Robert James
