First edition. This book is the result of twenty years of compilation; all, save for the last chapter, have appeared as journal articles, the first appearing in 1954 and the last in 1975. Human communication is one of the author’s many interests; the articles contained herein explore “the consequences of man’s unique discovery of the symbol.” Titles include The delta factor; The mystery of language; and Symbol as hermeneutic in existentialism.
