A PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE
is formulated in
of Humanity By ALFRED KORZYBSKI who calls his work “the Science and
Art of Human Engineering” His new concept is received by engineers, mathematicians and other men accustomed to rigorous thinking as of such fundamental importance to education, ethics and civilization as a whole that they declare it even more epochmaking than Newton's discovery of the law of gravitation. WALTER N. POLAKOV, eminent engi
neer, discussed it before the annual meeting of the Am. Soc. of Mech. Engineers, as appealing " at once to common sense and the most searching scrutiny of mathemati
cal analysis." CASSIUS J. KEYSER, Professor of Mathematics, Columbia University, made it the subject of his address to the Phi Beta Kappa Society, calling it “momentous in what it contains, even more so in what it suggests, and most of all, I dare say, in the excellent things it will eventually help med and women to think and say and do." A. F. SHELDON, Chairman of the Committee on Ethics and Philosophy of the International Association of Rotary Clubs, went to the recent annual meeting in Edinburgh especially to speak about this book, seeing in the truths revealed in it "the possibility of making a long stride toward putting the problems of human relationships, including those of commerce and industry, on the plane where they belong."
