The Yablo Paradox

Roy T Cook

Oxford University Press

This short concluding chapter examines the connections between the Yablo paradox, the Liar paradox involving negation, and the Curry paradox involving the material conditional. A Yablo–Curry hybrid is presented that incorporates the interesting and problematic aspects of the Yablo and Curry paradoxes into a single construction. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the difficulties facing any detailed examination similar to the one undertaken in previous chapters using graph theory and related techniques, of this more general Curry–Yablo construction (and variants and generalizations of it).

Keywords:   Yablo paradox, Curry paradox, graph theory, material conditional
