Additions to bibliography

Additions to Bibliography of
A. N. Prior's Writings

by Per Hasle



1938 | 1939 | 1940 | 1941 | 1942 | 1943 | 1944 | 1945 | 1946 | 1947 | 1949 | 1950 | 1951 | 1955 | 1961 | 1964 | 1968



This document is an addition to the already known bibliography published as:

Øhrstrøm, P.; Flo, Olav: 1996, 'Bibliography of A. N. Prior's Philosophical Writings'. In Copeland, Jack (editor): 1996, Logic and Reality: Essays in the Legacy of Arthur Prior, Oxford University Press/Clarendon Press, pp. 519-532.

An improved version of this bibliography is found at this site; see also the introduction to Bibliography of A. N. Prior's Writings.

All the items listed are new as compared with the two earlier Prior-bibliographies (Flo 1970 and Øhrstrøm/Flo 1996). The referencing system is the same as the one used by Øhrstrøm/Flo, as explained in Peter Øhrstrøm's introduction to the 1996-Bibliography. In this case it means that "new" papers from some year, say 1940, are continued from the last reference of that year (1940c), such that the first additional reference for 1940 given here will be numbered as '1940d'.

To a large extent the additions are based on Mary Prior's listing of the contents of some of the material in box 11 (See Two scrapbooks/box 11 and First folder/box 11); ; from a practical point of view this means that the items are found in this place. (Due to their fragile state, The Bodleian Library will remove the scrapbooks from box 11; however, their contents will be made available on micro-fiche). Compared with Mary Prior's list we have, however, omitted minor newspaper articles and letters by Prior, a few papers on which we have only obscure data, and of course items about but not by Prior (for instance newspaper articles on lectures and discussions involving Prior). On the other hand, we have included other hitherto unlisted papers by Prior, located from other sources. These are indicated by a (*).

In many cases it has been possible to certify the material directly from the sources of publication, but it must be borne in mind that not all material listed here has been certified systematically. The material in the two scrapbooks is typically cut out of the periodical in which it appeared, but with the place of publication added by hand (by Arthur or Mary Prior). Nevertheless, some data is often lost, typically page numbers, which are for that reason sometimes missing here. Where the dating and/or periodical is an open question, the item has been omitted here; fortunately this goes for only about 10 papers.

In a few cases where the date and/or the name of the periodical in question is missing, it has nevertheless been possible to make a highly probable guess (for instance based on typographical data); these items are included, but indicated by a (?).

When the additions have all been certified and some further journals have been analysed, it is hoped that one single and final bibliography of Prior's writings can be produced.
