Logic and Reality is a collection of essays by philosophers, logicians, mathematicians, and computer scientists, celebrating the work of the late distinguished philosopher Arthur Prior on the eightieth anniversary of his birth. Topics range from philosophical discussions of the nature of time and of the nature of logic itself, to descriptions of computer systems that can reason and take account of the fact that they exist in a temporal world.

B. J. Copeland is a Senior Lecturer, Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies at University of Canterbury.Review:
`The jaundiced reader who expects patchiness and substantial variation in quality across such a large number of essays will be pleasantly surprised by the consistently high quality of the contributions to Copeland's edition ... there is much to repay the philosopher's attention.'
John Divers, Mind, Vol. 109, No.435, July 2000.
`The index is well-organized and reasonably comprehensive. Each chapter is self-contained, with its own list of references and notes gathered together at its end, which is convenient for the reader ... the whole volume is a very impressive production and a worthy memorial to one of the finest
English-speaking philosophers of the twentieth century, a philosopher whose contribution to the history and philosophy of logic will surely continue to make a major impact well into the century to come.'
E. J. Lowe, History and Philosophy of Logic
`The sheer breadth and depth of the volume is a fitting testament to the breadth and depth of Prior's own work up until his death in 1969 ... other papers in this volume ... deserve reading and reflection. None is a waste of space in the volume, and all go a long way to underline Prior's own
approach to logic and philosophy. This volume is a fitting tribute to Prior, and a significant reminder of his enduring impact on the field.'
