This book attempts something new: to introduce the general public to semantics, the study of linguistic communication. This study goes beyond grammar, literature, style and so on, to the study of the meanings and the logical classification of words and statements, and the means of verification of statements.
 
 
All the most important problems, the problems of religion, morals, politics and sociology, can only be solved via the use of words.
 
 
The discovery of truth and the attainment of knowledge necessarily depend on a good understanding of language: in particular, of the notions of meaning and verification.
 
 
The subject requires only the patience to master a particular technique.
