The work of philosopher Saul Kripke, who was born and raised in Omaha and who is professor emeritus at Princeton University, will be the subject of a three-day conference beginning today at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.

Kripke’s impact on modern philosophy began when he proved his first theorem on modal logic as a 17-year-old student at Omaha Central High School. Kripke’s father, Rabbi Myer S. Kripke, led the Beth El Synagogue in Omaha, while his mother, Dorothy K. Kripke, wrote educational books for children on the Jewish faith.
