Peter Øhrstrøm, Henrik Schärfe
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper it is argued that "the four grades of tense-logical involvement" suggested by A.N.  ...  It is argued that all of them correspond to Prior's first and second grade, and that none of them reflect the views which Prior's third and fourth grade represent.  ...  This means that there is an essential relation between ontological inquiry and the study of the concept(s) of time (see [8] ). In his philosophical logic A.N.  ...

Passage, persistence and precision

McKinnon, Neil, 1971-
2017

I will begin by briefly revisiting the place where this all started, namely, A.N. Prior's 'Thank Goodness That's Over' argument.  ...
