Paradoxes: Their Roots, Range, and Resolution, Nicholas Rescher. Chicago and La Salle, Illinois: Open Court Press. Pp. 318. Cloth, $52.95. ISBN 0-8126-9436-8.


Professor Rescher has provided us with an interesting introduction to paradoxes. His scope is literally exhaustive; the writing is clear and the content has been made accessible to a wide audience. One can imagine this text replacing many introductory level texts in critical thinking courses; while at the same time many of Rescher’s conclusions warrant detailed scrutiny by honours or graduate level students interested in this subject. Indeed, the strength of the book is Rescher’s substantively original, even controversial, thesis and its application to paradoxes.
