Saving Truth From Paradox

This chapter introduces ‘dialetheic’ approaches, according to which Liar sentences are both true and false, indeed both true and not true. (Some contradictions are accepted.) Dialetheism provides another way (in addition to restricting excluded middle) to retain the Intersubstitutivity Principle, but some who believe in dialetheism (such as Priest) prefer to give up the Intersubstitutivity Principle. The rationales for going one way or the other on this, the topic of gluts and gaps, and the relation to the classical glut theories of Chapter 8 are discussed.

Keywords:   dialetheism, paraconsistent, truth value gluts, contradictions, Intersubstitutivity Principle, truth schema, contraposition, rejection, degree of belief, Priest
