Title

A.N. Prior, Logic notes III: "Predicates, quantifiers and descriptions" [lecture notes]

Description

Logic lecture notes mimeographed at the Philosophy Department of the Canterbury University College/University of Canterbury. The notes are presented in 200 sections, divided in 5 topical parts. Each part has a separate title, separate pagination and its own list of references at the end, but the numeration of the sections is continuous. The date is not given, but if the memorandum on the first page refers to the University of Canterbury, they would have been typed in 1958, which was the first year after Canterbury University College officially became the University of Canterbury, but also the last year of Prior's lectureship in New Zealand. The content of these logic notes, however, seems to have originated much earlier, perhaps during the first half of 1950s, because the newest references in the lists at the end of each part are from 1953.

Presented here are Logic notes III, titled 'Predicates, quantifiers and descriptions'. They contain sections 92-131 on pp. 1-15 and an appendix 'Formalised arithmetic, syllogistic and ontology' with sections 131A-131R, on pp. 16-22. The references are given on p. 15. The memorandum says 'University of Canterbury', which dates them from 1958.
