"Living With Change" The Semantics of Coping by: Wendell Johnson

Review A Book with Stephen Jepson

I have found none to be more important to my thinking than this:
 

Review A Book with Stephen Jepson

“Living With Change”   The Semantics of Coping by: Wendell Johnson–Harper and  Row

I found it so significant that I paid a professional to read it on tape, this was  in the mid 1970s, so that I could listen to the writing while I worked. I listen to it over and over for several years. I found the treatise filled with meaning.

On page 37 he poses three questions that he feels everyone should know – be aware of. He speaks of them as profound.

1. The first(for clarity) is:” what do you mean?”

2. The second (for validity) is:” how do you know?”

3. The third (for disciplined generalization) is:” what then?”

Exactly as they appear in the book.

I found the time exquisite.
