Ideas of Arthur N. Prior, by Text

[Australian, 1914 - 1969, Of Balliol College, Oxford.]

1960 The Runabout Inference Ticket
p.132 We need to know the meaning of 'and', prior to its role in reasoning
p.135 Prior's 'tonk' is inconsistent, since it allows the non-conservative inference A |- B
p.225 Prior rejected accounts of logical connectives by inference pattern, with 'tonk' his absurd example
09 p.236 Maybe introducing or defining logical connectives by rules of inference leads to absurdity
1968 Changes in Events and Changes in Things
p.13 p.21 That Queen Anne is dead is a 'general fact', not a fact about Queen Anne
