Old Wine in (Somewhat Leaky) New Bottles: Some Comments on Beall

  • Graham Priest Philosophy Department, Graduate Center, CUNY

Abstract

Dialetheists concerning the paradoxes of self-refrence have often argued that  the phenomeonon provides a choice between inconsistency and expressive incompleteness, and that inconsistency is the correct choice. In a recent paper (`Trivialising Sentences and the Promise of Semantic Completeness', Analysis (2015) 75: 573-84), JC Beall attacks this argument. This paper analyses his arguments, and argues that his paper simply provides a new spin on matters well known.
