This symbol, or Null-A, means non-Aristotelian, or a multivalued logic (all shades of gray). In comparison, Aristotelian means a two valued logic (only black or white).

Any additions, comments or corrections are welcome.

Since 1945 A. E. Van Vogt has been called Van instead of his first name, Alfred.

A. E Van Vogt died on January 26, 2000 at age 87. He had been suffering from Alzheimer's disease for the past 10 years. He died of complications of pneumonia. I hope that he will always be remembered for the greatest reading experiences, ever.

I had my own definition for general semantics after reading the Null-A books, but the

Institute of

General Semantics (IGS) gives a better definition. Includes links.

I joined the ISGS after learning it actually existed and wasn't just something in The World of Null-A.

Gordon Gow and Dirk Roos of McIntosh Laboratory were both on the board of directors of the ISGS.

An interesting biography and pictures.

Although this series was not his first work, it's the one that made the biggest impression on me.

Personal experiences in my search for reason and sanity in a world of superstition and ignorance.

An extensive list of stories by A.E. Van Vogt and E. Mayne Hull. Includes both short stories and novels. Listed alphabetically and by date.
