Instability and Contraction

Journal of Philosophical Logic. 2019. Vol. 48. No. 1. P. 155-188.

In other works, I’ve proposed a solution to the semantic paradoxes which, at the technical level, basically relies on failure of contraction. I’ve also suggested that, at the philosophical level, contraction fails because of the instability of certain states of affairs. In this paper, I try to make good on that suggestion.
