Prior Studies

Life and Work of Arthur Norman Prior



A Research Site for Prior Studies and Temporal Logic

Introduction

This site is devoted to the life and work of Arthur Norman Prior (1914-69), the founder of temporal logic. The site serves as the main dynamical research forum in its field. At the same time, it offers a comprehensive gateway to the rich Prior material kept various places in the world, and especially the collection kept in the Bodleian/Weston Library.

An important part of the dynamics of the site is The Virtual Lab for Prior Studies, where researchers work to annotate and transcribe archival material produced by or sent to Prior. When a material has been processed and approved, it is published in The Nachlass of A.N. Prior. The Nachlass is a crucial and constantly growing resource for research into Prior’s work as well as temporal logic in general.

The site also offers

  • A comprehensive overview of the material kept in the Bodleian/Weston Library,
  • bibliographic lists of work published by or on Prior,
  • information about the different archives around the world that hold material relevant for the study on Prior,
  • and links to other sites on Prior and to The Prior Studies YouTube Channel

We invite researchers and other interested parties to join The Research Community for Prior Studies and keep yourself updated on news and future events.

Finally, the website is one of the main news channels for the research project The Primacy of Tense: A.N. Prior Now and then, funded 2016-2019 by the Danish Council for Independent Research | Humanities. DFF | FKK Grant-ID: DFF - 6107-00087.
