"The Liar Paradox and the Sorites Paradox were discovered by the Ancient Greek thinker Eubulides. Two and a half thousand years later, we have a much deeper understanding of these paradoxes, their neighbours, and their importance, but there is still no consensus on how they should be solved. Roy Cook’s book explains current thinking on these matters in a clear, knowledgeable, and easy-going way. He has fashioned an excellent introduction to this intriguing area of thought."
Graham Priest, University of Melbourne
"Paradoxes can be the springboard of profound discovery. This book presents paradoxes that matter, and explains why and how they matter. And the book does it all in a user-friendly style that's enjoyable to read. And what's more: the book is reliable, written by one of the leading researchers on the topic. This book is henceforth on my list of required readings for anyone looking to study the philosophy of logic or the interplay of paradoxes, logic, and philosophy generally. It's a great accomplishment by one of today's exciting philosophers."
JC Beall, University of Connecticut
