This book, provides a critical approach to all major logical paradoxes: from ancient to contemporary ones. There are four key aims of the book: 1. Providing systematic and historical survey of different approaches - solutions of the most prominent paradoxes discussed in the logical and philosophical literature. 2. Introducing original solutions of major paradoxes like: Liar paradox, Protagoras paradox, an unexpected examination paradox, stone paradox, crocodile, Newcomb paradox. 3. Explaining the far-reaching significance of paradoxes of vagueness and change for philosophy and ontology. 4. Proposing a novel, well justified and, as it seems, natural classification of paradoxes.
From the reviews:“Piotr Łukowski’s Paradoxes is an abridged, revised and translated version of a book written in Polish … . As a source of paradoxes and arguments related to them, the book is highly valuable. … Łukowski often develops his analyses carefully. In his book he not only gathers the paradoxes … but also presents a rather unified and interesting view on them. It is definitely a good read.” (Rafal Urbaniak, Studia Logica, Vol. 101, 2013)
