Abstract

RIEGER SCHMIDT, Ana. THE GERALDUS ODONIS’ SOLUTION TO THE LIAR PARADOX. Univ. philos. [online]. 2016, vol.33, n.67, pp.303-319. ISSN 0120-5323.  http://dx.doi.org/10.11144/Javeriana.uph33-67.spdm.

The article aims to introduce the Franciscan theologian Geraldus Odonis (ca.1290-1349) into the medieval historiographical debate about the different solutions offered to the famous liar paradox. In the first part the author presents briefly and in a schematic way the main kinds of solution to the sophism to then analyze Odon’s text, answering the question of its originality.

Keywords : Geraldus Odonis; paradox; liar; sofismata; insolubilia.
