In this episode, Alex talks to Prof. Graham Priest (CUNY) about paradoxes, contradictions and the metaphysics of logic. Priest is well known for defending a theory, known as 'dialetheism', according to which some contradictions are true. He has also done considerable work on paraconsitent logic and the analysis of paradoxes.
We recommend his book, 'In Contradiction' (1987), and his website which features hundreds of free papers (http://grahampriest.net).
