FOREWORD TO THE THIRD EDITIO
Z
lfred Korzybski wrote
anhood
of Humanity
after his experiences in World War 1. At that
time, he posited that "the World War marked]
...
the end of Humanity's Childhood and the beginning
of Humanity's
anhood"
.
Ilowever, when I look
around at the world's situation as we begin the Twenty-
first Century, this seems too optimistic to me
.
Albanians, Croats, and Serbs are carrying on ethnic-
based civil war in the Balkans
. In the
iddle East, the
`peace process' between the Palestinians and the Israelis
seems to have totally broken down, with deaths on both
sides occurring weekly
. In Iraq, Kurdish and Shi'itepopulations face military attacks, and Saddam Hussein
continues to make threatening moves against Kuwait,
Saudi Arabia, and the U
.S
. planes patrolling the "no-fly
zone"
. In Africa, Rebels from the southern portion of
Sudan fight government troops from the north, whileAIDS and famine affect most of the continent
. In the
United States, in the two years since the ColumbineShooting, over forty school shooting incidents haveoccurred
. Etc
., etc
. It seems to me that we have entered
the "Teen-hood of Humanity", at best
.
It seems evident to me that the need for
Korzybski's insights has never been greater
. In light of
this, the Institute of General Semantics presents this
