Paradoxicality is a matter of degree, depending on how cunningly appearance masks reality. Earlier we used the Liar to mark a paradox of the highest degree, and the Barber to mark the lowest. The present discussion suggests, however, that we perhaps ought to relativize degrees of paradoxicality to persons. For, I suggested, what is less paradoxical for me may be more paradoxical for you. You may try to raise the degree of paradoxicality a putative paradox has for me by stress-ing the excellence of the arguments for the aspect of the paradox I reject.

If he himself does, then he does not (since he shaves only those who do not shave themselves); if he does not, then he indeed does (since he shaves all those who do not shave them-selves). The unacceptable supposition is that there is such a barber – one who shaves himself if and only if he does not. The story may have sounded acceptable: it turned our minds, agreeably enough, to the mountains of inland Sicily. However, once we see what the consequences are, we realize that the story cannot be true: there cannot be such a barber, or such a village.

The most that it could achieve is a qualification of ( a ). ) continuing to exist. However, the argument against sufficiency, if it is good at all, seems just as good against a correspondingly modified version of ( b ). Since Z * lies outside the Z -series, even passing through every Z -point and continuing to exist cannot logically guarantee arriving at Z *. Part of the puzzle here lies, I think, in the exact nature of the correspond-ence that we are setting up between mathematical series and physical space.
