Work

He is known for his bold defense of dialetheism, his in-depth analyses of the semantic paradoxes, and his many writings related to paraconsistent and other non-classical logics.

Priest, a long-time resident of Australia, is the author of numerous books, and has published articles in nearly every major philosophical and logical journal. He was a frequent collaborator with the late Richard Sylvan, a fellow proponent of dialetheism and paraconsistent logic.
