Title

Canterbury University College Calendar, 1955

Description

The Calendar of the Canterbury University College for the year 1955. The pages 18-19 of the Calendar list the college academic staff in 1955 by departments. In the department of Philosophy (p.18), we read that Professor of Philosophy is Arthur N. Prior M.A. (NZ), appointed in 1952, and Lecturer in Philosophy is J.M. Shorter, M.A. (Oxon). The syllabus of philosophy courses is given on pages 84-85. Philosophy 1 included the topic of logic and scientific method, and among the required textbooks were Russell's Problems of philosophy and Bochenski's Precis de logique mathematique. Philosophy II covered logic and ethics, and among the textbooks for logic was Bochenski's Ancient formal logic, Lukasiewicz's Aristotle's syllogistic and Prior's own Logic and the basis of ethics. Philosophy III included the topic of history of philosophy, while the honours course included advanced logic, for which works by Frege we among the recommended reading, as well as the philosophy of nature, space and time etc., recommending for reading Ryle's Concept of mind. Philosophy for B.Sc., an introductory course in philosophy for science students, had in the recommended reading list works by Lukasiewicz and one by Meredith. The section "Publications and researches, Philosophy", on page 161, lists five articles by Prior: "The logic of negative terms in Boethius" (Franciscan studies, 1953), "Negative quantifiers" (AJP 1953), "Three-valued logic and future contingents" (PQ 1953), "On some consequentiae in Walter Burleigh" (The new scholasticism 1953), "The paradoxes of derived obligation" (Mind 1954).
