The topic of the workshop is semantic paradox and revenge: the thought that any purported treatment of the semantic paradoxes breeds new paradoxes to which the treatment itself does not apply. We are interested in questions such as: Can there be a revenge-immune solution to the semantic paradoxes? Are inconsistent approaches to semantic paradox better equipped to deal with revenge paradoxes? Is there a general revenge problem for classical approaches to semantic paradox?
