Synopsis:

This guide to paradoxes takes the reader on a lively tour of puzzles that have taxed thinkers from Zeno to Galileo and Lewis Carroll to Bertrand Russell. Michael Clark uncovers an array of conundrums, such as Achilles and the Tortoise, Theseus' Ship, Hempel's Raven, and the Prisoners' Dilemma, taking in subjects as diverse as knowledge, ethics, science, art and politics. Clark discusses each paradox in non-technical terms, considering its significance and looking at likely solutions. He also includes a full glossary. A refreshing alternative to traditional philosophical introductions, "Paradoxes from A to Z" is designed to stimulate and entertain.

About the Author:

Michael Clark is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Nottingham, and editor of the journal Analysis. He is an external assessor for Open University.
