As B is not a consequence of A, the paradox is defeated. In fact, the result does not change even if the word “positions” is replaced by the word “statements” in A. e. rationally accept) is on its own criticizable. Therefore, if A is changed to “All statements are open to criticism” while B remains unchanged, then A has to be rejected as a false and rationally unacceptable statement. In other words, B is not a consequence of A, which defeats the paradox similarly. 4 Apart from Russell’s and Tarski’s approaches to such semantical paradox, various strategies, like Kripke’s concept of grounding, Van Fraassen’s device of supervaluations, and Gupta’s theory of revision rule, have been developed in recent decades to resolve it (Martin, 1984).

G. g. “long” is not a long word, “Chinese” is not a Chinese word). It arises when we consider whether the word “heterological” is heterological: on one hand, if “heterological” is a heterological word, then it is clearly autological (by definition), yet heterological (by assumption); on the other hand, if “heterological” is not a heterological word, then it is clearly heterological (by definition), yet autological (by assumption). In either case, a contradiction results. 20 2 Theoretical and Practical Justifications for Popper’s Non-justificationism rigorously logical argument: using logic, and presupposing logic, we reach illogic (Bartley, 1980).

And Bartley concedes that deducibility presupposes a minimal logic which he believes to be the law of non-contradiction (one of the three laws of thought, which states that a proposition cannot be both true and not true), for if contradictions were allowed, falsity could not be retransmitted and criticism in the intended sense would be impossible. Echoing Bartley’s defence that a minimal logic is presupposed in the argument or revision situation, Baghramian (2004) asserts that several core rules of logic – including the law of non-contradiction – are “preconditions of intelligibility of thought; they are minimum requirements for any coherent language-use” (p.
