Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“It’s a paradox.”
“Paradox is a creation of language, a linguistic fiction. Language is a beautiful tool, but it’s an imperfect tool, which sometimes gives rise to errors.”
“And paradoxes are one such error?”
Every paradox is an apparent paradox.
Once you deconstruct the (explicit and implicit) linguistic components that make up the paradox, you’re left with nothing.
It’s a bit like untying a knot. The knot has no metaphysical significance; it’s just tangled rope. In the same way, paradox is just a linguistic knot.”
