The Maharaj was quite clear that all personalities, including his own, and all memories of personal history, are ultimately an illusion, devoid of any real, lasting substance, for there is only the one supra-personal Divine Self. When asked about his past, the Maharaj declared that there is no such thing as the past—nothing has ever really happened! Bearing this in mind, we shall speak on the conventional level, the level of historical events within the dream of life, to note something of the sage Nisargadatta's earth-side history.
History[ edit ] The Epimenides paradox circa BC has been suggested as an example of the liar paradox, but they are not logically equivalent. It is precisely in order to avoid uncertainties deriving from the human factor and from fuzzy concepts that modern logicians proposed a "strengthened" liar such as the sentence "this sentence is false".
One version of the liar paradox is attributed to the Greek philosopher Eubulides of Miletus who lived in the 4th century BC. Eubulides reportedly asked, "A man says that he is lying.
Is what he says true or false? Jerome in a sermon: If it is true that every man is a liar, and David's statement, "Every man is a liar" is true, then David also is lying; he, too, is a man.
But if he, too, is lying, his statement: Whatever way you turn the proposition, the conclusion is a contradiction. Since David himself is a man, it follows that he also is lying; but if he is lying because every man is a liar, his lying is of a different sort.

He analyzes this paradox together with the paradox of "unsignifiability" and explores the boundary between statements that are unproblematic in daily life and paradoxes. Sentences can be constructed that cannot consistently be assigned a truth value even though they are completely in accord with grammar and semantic rules.
The simplest version of the paradox is the sentence: This statement A is false. If A is true, then "This statement is false" is true. Therefore, A must be false. The hypothesis that A is true leads to the conclusion that A is false, a contradiction.
If A is false, then "This statement is false" is false. Therefore, A must be true. The hypothesis that A is false leads to the conclusion that A is true, another contradiction. Either way, A is both true and false, which is a paradox.
However, that the liar sentence can be shown to be true if it is false and false if it is true has led some to conclude that it is "neither true nor false". The proposal that the statement is neither true nor false has given rise to the following, strengthened version of the paradox: This statement is not true.
B If B is neither true nor false, then it must be not true.
Since this is what B itself states, it means that B must be true. Since initially B was not true and is now true, another paradox arises.
Another reaction to the paradox of A is to posit, as Graham Priest has, that the statement is both true and false. Nevertheless, even Priest's analysis is susceptible to the following version of the liar: This statement is only false.
C If C is both true and false, then C is only false. But then, it is not true. Since initially C was true and is now not true, it is a paradox.Organizing and Revising Essays Quiz (Answer key) Sponsored by the Center for Teaching and Learning of UIS True 5.
