Paradox as a Model for Communication Disorders in Psychotherapy

"In summary, there are three types of paradoxes:

  1. logico-mathematical paradoxes (antimonies)
  2. paradoxical definitions (semantical antimonies)
  3. pragmatic paradoxes, (paradoxical injunctions and paradoxical predictions.)
clearly corresponding within the framework of the theory of human communication, to the three main areas of this theory--the first type to logical syntax, the second to semantics, and the third to pragmatics."
