The monograph (1981) shows that a fundamental paradox (that a line consists of infinitely many points) underlies all four paradoxes of motion: the runner, Achilles and the Tortoise, the Arrow and the Stadium. By the dissolution of the fundamental paradox, all four paradoxes of motion disappear. The second edition (1995) contains a postface, which gives a reply to P.K. Feyerabend, K.R. Popper, W.R. Knorr, J. Mansfeld and others who have discussed the book. The postface defends the following theses: (a) The paradoxes have not to be solved, but dissolved by elimination of their common source, the so-called fundamental paradox. (b) The fourth paradox, the stadium, has been misunderstood by Aristotle and has to be reconstructed in a new way. Half the time equals the whole because the two rows both have to traverse an infinite number of points.

## Abstract

The monograph (1981) shows that a fundamental paradox (that a line consists of infinitely many points) underlies all four paradoxes of motion: the runner, Achilles and the Tortoise, the Arrow and the Stadium. By the dissolution of the fundamental paradox, all four paradoxes of motion disappear. The second edition (1995) contains a postface, which gives a reply to P.K. Feyerabend, K.R. Popper, W.R. Knorr, J. Mansfeld and others who have discussed the book. The postface defends the following theses: (a) The paradoxes have not to be solved, but dissolved by elimination of their common source, the so-called fundamental paradox. (b) The fourth paradox, the stadium, has been misunderstood by Aristotle and has to be reconstructed in a new way. Half the time equals the whole because the two rows both have to traverse an infinite number of points.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.

You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
