Aimed at undergraduates of philosophy and at general readers with no background in philosophy, the purpose of this book is to serve as an introduction to the basic steps of logic by presenting some of the most apparently irresolvable paradoxes and showing the range of possible solutions.

Review:

'An engaging and accessible guide through some of the deepest conceptual labyrinths we know. Sainsbury encourages the reader to think with him, always asking questions and pointing out roads not taken. This is the first place I send students who have become puzzled by the liar paradox or the paradox of the heap.' John McFarlane, University of California, Berkeley

Book Description:

The expanded and revised third edition of this intriguing book considers a range of knotty paradoxes including paradoxes about morals, paradoxes about belief, and hardest of all, paradoxes about truth. It is not only an explanation of paradoxes but also an excellent introduction to philosophical thinking.
