of Korzybski who will welcome these pages with the knowledge that they have been corrected by the advice and thoughtful suggestions of Kendig and her staff.
Charles Morris, my friend and my professor and guide over the years, took the time to read that portion of this book which concerns his two major works relative to the science of signs, to edit that portion of this book, and to read it in final draft. But, although my pages which are concerned with these important works have had the scrutiny of their author, they should be considered as the work of a student who has relied upon the pioneer work of the recognized leader in this field.
And now I must give credit to others, without whom this book could not have been written:
