(par'-u-doks'): Two physicians
in logic and mathematics, an apparently absurd or contradictory conclusion that follows from one or more compelling-at any rate, plausible-statements or premises Some paradoxes cannot be solved without fundamental revisions of the human conceptual apparatus One example is the paradox of the liar The sentence "This sentence is false" seems to be well-formed and meaningful Yet, it is true if, and only if, it is false, that is, not true This paradox apparently forces either a restriction of the expressive power of language (so that the liar sentence cannot be formed) or a rejection of the compelling principle that a sentence is true if and only if what it says is true Over 2,000 years after it was first posed, there is still no agreement among philosophers as to its resolution Another example is Russell's Paradox (named after Bertrand Russell)

A paradox is a statement in which it seems that if one part of it is true, the other part of it cannot be true. Although I'm so successful I'm really rather a failure. That's a paradox, isn't it?. Apparently self-contradictory statement whose underlying meaning is revealed only by careful scrutiny. Its purpose is to arrest attention and provoke fresh thought, as in the statement "Less is more." In poetry, paradox functions as a device encompassing the tensions of error and truth simultaneously, not necessarily by startling juxtapositions but by subtle and continuous qualifications of the ordinary meanings of words. When a paradox is compressed into two words, as in "living death," it is called an oxymoron. liar paradox Olbers's paradox paradoxes of Zeno
a contradiction or illogicality, contrary to expectations
(logic) a self-contradiction; "`I always lie' is a paradox because if it is true it must be false"

Burali-Forti paradox
The following paradox: Let L be the set of all ordinal numbers. This set is well-ordered, so it has an ordinal number γ. Since L is the set of all ordinal numbers, L contains γ. But γ is equal to the well-ordered set of all ordinal numbers β smaller than γ. Thus, L is order isomorphic to one of its proper subsets, a contradiction
European paradox
The perceived failure of European countries to translate scientific advances into marketable innovations

... the research policy paradigm was already well embedded in a competitiveness/innovation oriented understanding and an understanding of the so-called European paradox, that is, the conjecture that EU member states play a leading global role in terms of top-level scientific output, but lag behind in the ability of converting this strength into wealth-generating innovations..

Fermi paradox
The seeming contradiction, serving as a challenge to believers in the existence of advanced lifeforms throughout the universe, that there is no scientific evidence that extraterrestrial civilizations have tried to visit or communicate with us

Fermi argued that the fact that aliens don't seem to be hanging out with us here on Earth (the tabloid stories aside) strongly contradicts the assumed existence of intelligent life elsewhere in our galaxy, a problem that came to be known as the Fermi Paradox.

French paradox

the observation that the night sky is mostly dark, yet, in a boundless universe of stars, every line of sight from the eye must eventually intercept the surface of a star

twin paradox
The clock paradox
{a} inclined to contraieties, strange
Olbers's paradox
Paradox of why the sky is dark at night. If the universe is endless and uniformly populated with luminous stars, every line of sight must end at the surface of a star and the night sky should be bright with no dark spaces between stars. This paradox is widely attributed to Heinrich Wilhelm Olbers (1758-1840), who discussed it in 1823, though Johannes Kepler first advanced the problem in 1610 as an argument against the notion of a limitless universe with infinite stars. The paradox has since been resolved: we can see no farther than the light-travel distance within the lifetime of the universe, and light becomes redshifted to invisibility (see redshift)
causality paradox
A hypothetical effect that would result if an individual were to travel back in time and cause changes to the circumstances that led to his or her current actions
liar paradox
Paradox derived from the statement attributed to the Cretan prophet Epimenides (6th century BC) that all Cretans are liars. If Epimenides' statement is taken to imply that all statements made by Cretans are false, then since Epimenides was a Cretan, his statement is false (i.e., not all Cretans are liars). The paradox's simplest form arises from considering the sentence "This sentence is false." If it is true, then it is false, and if it is false, then it is true. Consideration of such semantic paradoxes led logicians to distinguish between object language and metalanguage and to conclude that no language can consistently contain a complete semantic theory for its own sentences
plural of paradox
Of the nature of a paradox
seemingly contradictory but nonetheless possibly true; "it is paradoxical that standing is more tiring than walking"
seemingly contradictory but nonetheless possibly true; "it is paradoxical that standing is more tiring than walking
Inclined to paradoxes, or to tenets or notions contrary to received opinions
If something is paradoxical, it involves two facts or qualities which seem to contradict each other. Some sedatives produce the paradoxical effect of making the person more anxious + paradoxically para·doxi·cal·ly Paradoxically, the less you have to do the more you may resent the work that does come your way
{s} contradictory, illogical, negates itself
