I suggest reading "G-Prime: Lycophron and the Culture Wars of Ancient Greece

General Semantics pointed out at the pitfalls of Aristotelian (black or white) logic and encourages precise-thinking and a more accurate method of communication. This later became know as Null-A (non-Aristotelian), as popularized by science-fiction writer A. E Van Vogt.

According to this theory, one of the flaws of Aristotelian logic deals with using the verb "to be" for identity and prediction. In 1949, a student of Korzybski's named D. David Bourland, Jr., set out to demonstrate that he could write and speak without using any form of "to be." His success in this allowed Bourland to communicate his ideas in a more clear and concise manner.
