For paradox brings forth a picture of an ashtray with a no smoking symbol inscribed on it Proposing solutions Cuonzo writes is a natural response to paradoxes She invites s to rethink paradoxes by focusing on strategies for solving them arguing that there is much to be learned from this regardless of whether any of the powerful paradoxes is even capable of solutionCuonzo offers a catalog of paradox solving strategies including the Preemptive Strike estioning the paradox itself the Odd Guy Out calling one of the assumptions into estion and the You Can't Get There from Here denying.
