About this title


Paradoxes—sets of propositions that are individually plausible but collectively inconsistent—range from transparent tricks of word-play to more puzzling issues. For example, if the barber, an adult male in the village, shaves all adult males who do not shave themselves, then he both shaves himself and does not shave himself. In this fresh and uncluttered approach, Nicholas Rescher introduces the subject, surveys the entire range of types of paradoxes, and introduces an integrated theory of paradoxes. He explains and analyzes over 130 paradoxes, showing how they can all be handled by one approach.

About the Author:

Nicholas Rescher is professor of philosophy and director of the Center for Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh. A past president of the Eastern Division of the American Philosophical Association and former editor of American Philosophical Quarterly, he is the author of over 80 books.
