This book "supplies a vocabulary of English words and idiomatic phrases 'arranged … according to the ideas which they express'. The thesaurus, continually expanded and updated, has always remained in print, but this reissued first edition shows the impressive breadth of Roget's own knowledge and interests."

Structuralism was abandoned before its potential as a cognitive science could be realized. Reviving it with what we know today provides new insights into the structure of consciousness. Treating the relations between actual linguistic signs as organic properties of mind reveals a set of conceptual relations that lie beyond the constructs of cognitive psychology, in the transpersonal realm of higher order consciousness. This is where correlates can be found between linguistic sign relations, ultimate states of consciousness, and the elemental structure of myths.
