Example text

If the barber does not shave himself, he should do so for he shaves everyone in the town who does not shave himself; yet if he does shave himself he should not do so, since he only shaves those who do not shave themselves. A similar argument applies to the catalogue: if it includes itself it should not have done so, and if it does not include itself it should have done so. The theory which is the goal of the Great Project is thus also an example, for it is a theory which must include itself, but if it does so is no longer true.

It is also possible that some of the distinctions made may at first seem arbitrary and the examples given, due to their brevity, may be interpreted as either misguided or inconclusive. If this is the case I would encourage readers to persevere to the later parts and chapters where the application of the framework to science, art, and society may clarify points that have been opaque and which at the same time will I believe provide convincing evidence for its adoption. xlviii Part I THE STRUCTURE OF CLOSURE Introduction: the making of reality and ourselves In the familiar everyday picture of the world, the world is divided into things: the sun and moon, the sea and sky, houses and people, tables and chairs.

Part I outlines the basic framework of such an account. Part II applies this framework to language, while Parts III, IV and V, apply the framework of closure to science and mathematics; art and religion; and to society.
