Frank Buchman's Moral Re-Armament and Alfred Korzybski's General Semantics: A Comparison and Contrast.
Drake, H. L.
This paper hypothesizes that Frank Buchman and Alfred Korzybski were aware of each other and made some comments--written or orally--about each other's work. Support for this hypothesis was developed by concentrating on correspondence, documents, and interviews relative to the two men. The paper also provides documentation about Buchman and Korzybski which is not in print or easily accessible and which offers additional perspectives regarding the two men and their work. The paper is in nine sections: (1) Introduction; (2) Frank Buchman; (3) Alfred Korzybski; (4) Moral Re-Armament; (5) Non-Aristotelianism; (6) Comparisons and Contrasts; (7) Select Contemporaneous Aspects; (8) Literary Influences; and (9) Conclusion. Ninety-nine notes are included. (SR)
