The British author J. Priestley wrote a number of dramas during the s and 40s, which have come to be known as his Time Plays. In the plays, various theories of time become a central theatrical device of the play, the characters' lives being affected by how they react to the unusual temporal landscape they encounter. Of all the theories of time employed in the plays, Priestley professed to take only one seriously: that of J. Dunne as expounded in his book An Experiment with Time. However, his acceptance of the theory is qualified.
This article is intended as a timely reminder pardon the pun of how one discovery, made by an independent researcher over 50 years ago, turns out to be relevant to new directions now being taken by parapsychologists in the 21st century. B Priestley had in precognition is virtually forgotten today. Although he may not have fully understood the elaborate calculations and experiments of modern physics which had superseded the classical Newtonian version of reality from the early 20th century , Priestley believed there was mounting evidence for precognition, and that people could see or even feel future events before they happened. This was an area that few physicists were prepared to venture into, at least publicly. Priestley believed evidence of precognition could be gathered from every day human life, and he compiled a remarkable collection of precognitive dreams and experiences. Many of these were gathered as a result of appeals he made in the press in and , and also discussed on the BBC TV programme Monitor. Priestley asked readers and viewers to write to him about any precognitive experiences they might have had.

At the age of 16 he took a job as a junior clerk at a local wool firm and started writing at night. After the war he rarely spoke of these experiences. When he returned to Britain, he attended Cambridge University and started to write again, mainly short pieces for local periodicals, before embarking on a career as a freelance writer in London. By the age of 30 he was well established as an essayist, critic and a novelist. In they divorced, and he later married the archaeologist and writer Jacquetta Hawkes, his collaborator on the play Dragon's Mouth
Abstract Using letters sent to British playwright J. Priestley in , this paper explores the intersection between patient-focused history of psychiatry and the history of parapsychology in everyday life. Priestley's study of precognition lay outside the main currents of parapsychology, and his status as a storyteller encouraged confidences about anomalous temporal experience and mental illness. Drawing on virtue epistemology, I explore the regulation of subjectivity operated by Priestley in establishing the credibility of his correspondents in relation to their gender and mental health, and investigate the possibility of testimonial justice for these witnesses. Priestley's ambivalent approach to madness in relation to visions of the future is related to the longer history of prophecy and madness.
On Doing Nothing by J. B. Priestley
His Yorkshire background is reflected in much of his fiction, notably in The Good Companions , which first brought him to wide public notice. Many of his plays are structured around a time slip , and he went on to develop a new theory of time, with different dimensions that link past, present, and future. In , he broadcast a series of short propaganda radio talks that were credited with strengthening civilian morale during the Battle of Britain. In the following years, his left-wing beliefs brought him into conflict with the government and influenced the development of the welfare state. Priestley was born on 13 September at 34 Mannheim Road, Manningham , which he described as an "extremely respectable" suburb of Bradford.
A long time ago, several thousands kilometers away from where I live now, I read this essay. I searched all over the internet, and the local libraries in Melbourne. Then, I thought another person on this planet might be looking for this. I also made a PDF version.

Она не испанка? - спросил Беккер. - Нет. Думаю, англичанка. И с какими-то дикими волосами - красно-бело-синими. Беккер усмехнулся, представив это зрелище. - Может быть, американка? - предположил .
Он страстно желал разделить эту мечту со Сьюзан, осуществить ее с ней вместе, но знал, что это невозможно. Хотя смерть Энсея Танкадо спасет в будущем тысячи жизней, Сьюзан никогда не примет ничего подобного: она убежденная пацифистка. Я тоже пацифист, - подумал Стратмор, - я просто не могу позволить себе роскошь вести себя как пацифист.
