Paradoxes from A to Z

Praise for previous editions:

‘Self-contained courses in paradox are not usually taught as part of a philosophy degree. There is good reason for thinking they should be, and this book would make the ideal text for just such a course.’ – Times Higher Education Supplement

‘Clark’s survey is an entertaining junkshop of mind-troubling problems.’ – The Guardian

Paradoxes from A to Z is a clear, well-written and philosophically reliable introduction to a range of paradoxes. It is the perfect reference book for anyone interested in this area of philosophy.’ – Nigel Warburton, author of Philosophy: The Basics

‘An excellent book … Clark’s masterful discussion makes this one of the best general introductions to paradoxes.’ – James Cargile, University of Virginia, USA

‘Very well done … a useful complement to the existing literature.’ – Alan Weir, University of Glasgow, UK

Paradoxes from A to Z, Third edition is the essential guide to paradoxes, and 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, and the Prisoner's Dilemma, taking in subjects as diverse as knowledge, science, art and politics. Clark discusses each paradox in non-technical terms, considering its significance and looking at likely solutions.





This third edition is revised throughout, and adds nine new paradoxes that have important bearings in areas such as law, logic, ethics and probability.





Paradoxes from A to Z, Third edition is an ideal starting point for those interested not just in philosophical puzzles and conundrums, but anyone seeking to hone their thinking skills.
