General Semantics: An Approach to Effective Language Behavior

Manchester University via Canvas Network

Overview

This course provides an introduction to general semantics—the study of how we transform our life experiences into language and thought. Students will learn how their language habits and behaviors, as well as how they think about and share experiences, are what make them uniquely human. In other words, students will discover the critical, but sometimes subtle distinctions between what happens in their lives and how they talk about what happens.

Taught by

Steve Stockdale, Greg Thompson, Ph.D. and Mary Lahman, Ph.D.
