OPPOSITIONS AND PARADOXES
This course investigates the role played in philosophical and scientific thought by basic oppositions, such as Continuous vs. Discrete, One vs. Many, and Finite vs. Infinite, and analyzes many philosophical and scientific paradoxes: Zeno's paradoxes, the Liar Paradox, Russell's paradox, paradoxes of the infinite, and paradoxes arising from time travel.
