Quotes by Alfred Korzybski

About Alfred Korzybski:


Alfred Habdank Skarbek Korzybski is limited both by the human nervous system and the languages humans have developed, and thus no one can have direct access to reality, given that the most we can know is that which is filtered through the brain's responses to reality. His best known dictum is "The map is not the territory".
