    This is a list of paradoxes, grouped grouping is approximate, as paradoxes may fit into more than one category. This list collects only scenarios that have been called a paradox by at least one source and have their own article on Wikipedia. Although considered paradoxes, some of these are simply based on fallacious reasoning (), or an unintuitive solution (). If possibility allows for paradoxes — and the existences of paradoxes in Philosophy, semiotics, and language proves it is indeed possible for them to exist such that it can be said “we know.

    The narrative is carried by the author’s insights, admonitions and the engaging profiles of those working to resolve the predator paradox.” —Kirkus Reviews “[Shivik’s] book is a highly readable review of an extensive body of knowledge on how to behave around predators without killing them.” —James M. Peek, BioScience.   In Paradox and Infinity, you will be introduced to highlights from the intersection of philosophy and mathematics.. The class is divided into three modules: Infinity: Learn about how some infinities are bigger than others, and explore the mind-boggling hierarchy of bigger and bigger infinities. Time Travel and Free Will: Learn about whether time travel is logically possible, and whether it is.

    The raven paradox, also known as Hempel's paradox, Hempel's ravens, or rarely the paradox of indoor ornithology, is a paradox arising from the question of what constitutes evidence for a statement. Observing objects that are neither black nor ravens may formally increase the likelihood that all ravens are black even though, intuitively, these observations are unrelated. ‎When Dr. Wells, the head of the Place in Time Travel Agency, learns that someone's trying to track down the ancestors of his star employee, there are few people he can turn to without revealing her secrets. But who better to jump down the timeline and rescue Elise from being snuffed out of existence.
