The New York Society for General Semantics, in partnership with the Institute of General Semantics, is proud to announce the second edition of our Non-Aristotelian Reading Circle. All are welcome to join! Are you new to general semantics? Are you a seasoned scholar, practitioner, or intellectually curious individual? Our meetings will be held virtually, via Zoom, on Tuesday nights from 7pm until 9pm EST. We encourage those with experience in general semantics thinking to bring along friends and colleagues new to the discipline in order to expand our reach.
