 David Liggins (University of Manchester): A Priorian solution to a Priorian problem.

Abstract: In his 1961 paper ‘On a family of paradoxes’, A. N. Prior proved a theorem which raises a philosophical problem since it seems to contradict easily observable facts involving belief, assertion, and many other phenomena. In this talk I set out the problem and propose a solution to it.
