Albert Ellis RIP

Here's an obituary of Albert Ellis, the leader/developer of rational emotive therapy. His contributions are noted in just about every communication textbook around, whether given explicit credit or not. His emphasis on the importance of the way we talk about our problems being a large part of our problems made him a central figure in communication. He was also a General Semanticist and even wrote one of his books--A New Guide to Rational Thinking (Wilshire Books)in e-prime, that is, without the verb "to be" in any of its forms.
