Fixed point: a point that satisfies the equation f (x) = x is a fixed point i.e. x is mapped to itself. S.A. Kripke based his alternative theory of truth from 1975 on fixed points in order to resolve the problem of paradoxes when dealing with selfreference. (Kripke, S., 1975. Outline of a Theory of Truth, The Journal of Philosophy, 72 690716.). See also selfreference, paradoxes, liar paradox, truth theory. _____________ Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments.
