Truth and the Liar Paradox

4 p.m. - 5 p.m. / Betty Boyd Lounge, E. Moore Hall

The liar paradox is a well-known puzzle in the philosophy of logic: Is the sentence, “This sentence is false” true or false? Both answers seem to lead to a contradiction. But calling the liar paradox a puzzle does not do justice to its implications. Thinking through the paradox carefully requires confronting deep questions about the nature of meaning, truth and logic.
