I came across this wonderful introduction to several famous paradoxes quite a while ago, but haven’t taken the time to inform you all about it. Daniel Haggard presents a non-technical explanation of five age-old paradoxes that have both delighted and confused humanity. It’s a very accessible read and I recommend it for everyone interested in the strange logical conundrums that surround us. I particularly enjoy his section on Newcomb’s Paradox, which boggles my brain every time I think about it. Honestly, I’m glad that paradoxes exist. I mean, nothing I say is true, right?
