I will argue in my talk that this method is a very useful tool to have in your toolbox, no matter what your particular academic discipline is. We will practice this method studying logical paradoxes and see the power of this method in broadening our understanding of paradoxes and logic in general. But can we overcome the logical paradoxes? Well, lets try.
