Liar Syllogisms

Analysis 50 (1):1 - 7 (1990)
  Copy   BIBTEX


This article is about self-referential arguments that are akin to the paradox of the liar. They make reference to their own validity, invalidity, soundness, unsoundness, or to the truth or falsity of their own premises or conclusions. Several very puzzling examples of such arguments are considered and their paradoxicality is defended against objections.
