Paradoxes that are not actually paradoxes

James Holland, Rutgers University

Location:  GSL
Date & time: Friday, 14 September 2018 at 1:40PM - 2:40PM

  Abstract:  I'm gonna talk about some paradoxes in set theory, and tell you why they aren't paradoxes (how paradoxical!). In particular, I'll give some background in logic, and then present/resolve as many paradoxes as I can. I’ll get to at least Skolem's paradox, and a consequence of Gödel's incompleteness theorem(s).
