A. E. van Vogt: In Search of Meaning.
Drake, H. L.
A general semantics perspective of science fiction writer A. E. van Vogt is presented in this paper. The first major section of the paper contains a biographical sketch of van Vogt and traces the influence of A. Korzybski's work on general semantics, "Science and Sanity," on his writing, while the second major section provides an extended discussion of general semantics criteria. The third major section of the paper offers synopses of five van Vogt stories and examines the general semantics criteria found in them. (FL)
