International Society for General Semantics Edition (1978)
Like Korzybski, Mary Everest Boole, widow of mathematician George Boole, had an abiding interest in "mathematical psychology." Starting with her work with her husband, she spend a lifetime exploring what the processes involved in ‘thinking’ ‘mathematically’ and ‘scientifically’ might reveal about the capacity of human ‘thinking’ in general.
As Mary Morain noted in her introduction to this edition, "The Preparation of the Child for Science brought together in 1904 her observations and conclusions in the field of education of small children."
This rich, inspiring book can help anyone who wants to understand basic attitudes foundational to Korzybski’s later work.
