Australian General Semantics Society Inc.


Saturday 9th April 2022

10am Sydney time 


Facilitated by Mr Brett McDonald

An interactive seminar where we looked at the GS formulations and the problems they help solve, and tried to rate which ones give the most value to solving problems of unsane evaluating.

We considered "novelty" as seen from an experimental perspective,
a bit of history and current research,
then linked it to semantic and juxta common place associations we are more familiar with -
habit, discrepancy, forgetfulness etc.

Yep PhD was around a theory that encompassed novelty reactions in neuro-psychophysiology.
