ePub Revenge of the Liar ePub

by J.C. Beall

The Liar paradox raises foundational questions about logic, language, and truth. A simple Liar sentence like 'This sentence is false' appears to be both true and false if it is either true or false. If the sentence is true, then it must be false. If the statement is false, then it is true, since it says that it is false. A solution would be that Liars are neither true nor false; they fall into a category beyond truth and falsity. This solution beckons the Liar's revenge. A sentence that says of itself only that it is false or beyond truth and falsity will bring back the initial problem. The Liar's revenge is a witness to the nature of Liars: in dealing with one Liar you often bring about another. JC Beall presents fourteen new essays and an extensive introduction, which examine the nature of the Liar paradox and its resistance to any attempt to solve it.
