Paradoxes: are contradictions within formally correct statements or sets of statements that lead to an existence assumption, which initially seemed plausible, to be withdrawn. Paradoxes are not errors, but challenges that may lead to a re-formulation of the prerequisites and assumptions, or to a change in the language, the subject domain, and the logical system. See also Russellian paradox, contradictions, range, consistency.

Paradoxes/Ortega y Gasset/VsOrtega: Ortega's study (1) often deals with the understanding of paradoxical phenomena that are no longer so paradoxical on closer inspection. One example would be the coming together of primitivity and civilization in mass society. Specifying the aspect in which something is primitive or civilized in such a society dissolves the paradox. See also Method/Ortega.
