Paradoxes: Their Roots, Range, and Resolution

Synopsis

A paradox (from the Greek word meaning "contrary to expectation") is a statement that seems self-contradictory but may be true. Exploring the distinction between truth and plausibility, the author presents a standardized, straightforward approach for deciphering paradoxes -- one that can be applied to all their forms, whether clever wordplay or more complex issues.
