Do anti-depressant medications work?

We have been having a fascinating discussion that I reckon is best framed as “Do anti-depressant medications work?”  It would be witless to try to have a credible discussion here about the science.  But we don’t need to delve too deeply into the science when the semantics of the question is so much more compelling and […]

Is ePrime more than just a “semantic game”?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Thu 5 Apr 18 in ePrime, General Semantics, Uncategorized |

 Someone recently wrote something to the effect that he embraces the principle of ePrime, but does not use it in ordinary conversation because it often sounds peculiar and therefore might alienate the OP.       490 total views, no views today Originally posted 2012-12-31 03:20:25.

Is “should” ever necessary?

A faithful reader asks What’s the best response to “I should have ______  (done x y z more) and if I had, things would be different now”?     Thank Ah, yes!  Our “Darling Shoulds!”  How we resist relinquishing them!   As if they were some jewel more precious than diamonds!   😉  5,658 total views, 0 views today Originally posted […]

A reader is confused about labels and self-rating

 Rate behavior . . . not self, and you are doing good ePrime and  on the right track for doing good REBT.  This process is even more comprehensible and user-friendly if you learn something about ePrime, which is not too much of a stretch   2,070 total views, no views today Originally posted 2013-07-17 02:39:22.

Toward Understanding e-Prime

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sun 18 Mar 18 in ePrime, General Semantics, Guest Author Posts |

  TOWARD UNDERSTANDING E -PRIME by Robert Anton Wilson http://www.nobeliefs.com/eprime.htm E-PRIME, abolishing all forms of the verb "to be," has its roots in the field of general semantics, as presented by Alfred Korzybski in his 1933 book, Science and Sanity. Korzybski pointed out the pitfalls associated with, and produced by, two usages of "to be": […]

Is anythnig ever truly 100% awful?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sat 10 Mar 18 in Acceptance, Awfulzing, General Semantics |

I enjoy the General Semantics (actually, more "ePrime") exercise of debating whether anything is ever truly 100% awful. Continue reading if you would like to know why REBT firmly asserts that NOTHING is ever 100% awful…   2,155 total views, no views today Originally posted 2013-02-08 19:20:50.
