Abstract: This paper examines the concept of “paradox” in the Liar paradox. The paradox in the “Liar Paradox” arguments is created with the support of law of contradiction. Four arguments consist of different versions of the Liar paradox are analysed. The author explains the issues related to communication, beliefs and the principle of identity in the various arguments of the Liar paradox leading to inconsistencies. There are ambiguities in these arguments and if the ambiguities are removed, then there is no contradiction which constitutes the paradox. Thus, the “paradox” in the “Liar Paradox” arguments is questionable.
Keywords: Liar Paradox / arguments / ambiguities / inconsistencies / constitutes / beliefs / removed / contradiction
