FOM: priority and forcing

There is a paper by Lachlan, based on his lectures at the 
1971 Cambridge Summer School in Mathematical Logic, which 
(from memory) presents priority arguments as 
applications of the Baire Category Theorem for cunningly defined 
topologies; a counterpart, perhaps, to Ryll-Nardzewski's 
interpretation of the construction of generic objects as another 
instance of BCT. 

The paper is in the Proceedings of that meeting, published in the 
Springer Lecture Notes series in 1973, and edited by myself and 
Hartley Rogers Jr.
