A Paradox of Cinematic Narration

Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsBook ChapterResearchpeer-review


Considering the propositions expressed by the following three sentences:
(1) Some cinematic works are narrations
(2) A work is a narration only if it has one or more narrators
(3) Some of the cinematic works that are narrations have no narrator.

This collection of propositions is a paradox in the sense that there are reasons why each proposition appears to be sound when considered on its own, yet the collection is inconsistent.
