"Paris, 1643: Dorante is a charming young man newly arrived in the capital, and he has but a single flaw: He cannot tell the truth. In quick succession he meets Cliton, a manservant who cannot tell a lie, and falls in love with Clarice, a charming young woman whom he unfortunately mistakes for her friend Lucrece. What our hero regrettably does not know is that Clarice is secretly engaged to his best friend Alcippe. Nor is he aware that his father is trying to get him married to Clarice, whom he thinks isLucrece, who actually is in love with him. From all these misunderstandings and a series of breathtakingly intricate lies springs one of the Western world's greatest comedies, a sparkling urban romance as fresh as the day Pierre Corneille wrote it, brilliantly adapted for today by All in the Timing's David Ives."--P.[4] of cover.

Bringing together powerful new tools from set theory and the philosophy of language, this book proposes a solution to one of the few unresolved paradoxes from antiquity, the Paradox of the Liar. Treating truth as a property of propositions, not sentences, the authors model two distinct conceptions of propositions: one based on the standard notion used by Bertrand Russell, among others, and the other based on J.L. Austin's work on truth. Comparing these two accounts, the authors show that while the Russellian conception of the relation between sentences, propositions, and truth is crucially flawed in limiting cases, the Austinian perspective has fruitful applications to the analysis of semantic paradox. In the course of their study of a language admitting circular reference and containing its own truth predicate, Barwise and Etchemendy also develop a wide range of model-theoretic techniques--based on a new set-theoretic tool, Peter Aczel's theory of hypersets--that open up new avenues in logical and formal semantics.

The brilliant and outrageous debut novel from British actor, comedian, author, presenter, journalist and national treasure, Stephen Fry. Stephen Fry's breathtakingly outrageous debut novel, by turns eccentric, shocking, brilliantly comic and achingly romantic. Adrian Healey is magnificently unprepared for the long littleness of life; unprepared too for the afternoon in Salzburg when he will witness the savage murder of a Hungarian violinist; unprepared to learn about the Mendax device; unprepared for more murders and wholly unprepared for the truth. The Liar is a thrilling, sophisticated and laugh out loud hilarious novel from a brilliantly talented writer.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Filmwissenschaft, Note: 1,0, Hochschule für Film und Fernsehen "Konrad Wolf" Potsdam-Babelsberg, 15 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: "Jakob der Lügner" ist nicht nur einzige DEFA-Film, der für den 'Oscar' in der Kategorie "Bester ausländischer Film" nominiert war, also für den bedeutendsten Filmpreis Hollywoods. Er ist auch der einzige Film in der 40-jährigen DEFA-Produktion, der jemals von Hollywood neuverfilmt wurde. So liegt ein Vergleich zwischen beiden Verfilmungen nahe, der auch die beiden Systeme berücksichtigt, innerhalb derer die Filme entstanden sind. Da sowohl die DEFA als auch Hollywood stilprägend für die Filmproduktion ihres Landes waren bzw. sind, versucht die vorliegende Arbeit eine vergleichende Stilanalyse von "Jakob der Lügner", dem Film von Frank Beyer (1974), und "Jakob the Liar", dem Remake von Peter Kassovitz (1998). Beginnend mit einer Gegenüberstellung der beiden Studiosysteme werden zunächst die äußeren Bedingungen der jeweiligen Produktionsweisen verglichen. Anhand der unterschiedlichen ideologischen Ausrichtung von DEFA und Hollywood werden anschließend die Wirkungsintentionen abgeleitet, die mit der Produktion von Filmen in beiden Systemen verbunden waren bzw. sind. Auf der morphologischen Ebene befasst sich diese Arbeit mit dem Genre beider "Jakob"-Verfilmungen sowie der Bedeutung von Genres im jeweiligen System. Im weiteren Verlauf sind die Narration, die Figurenzeichnung, die Musikgestaltung sowie die visuellen Gestaltungsmittel Gegenstand der vergleichenden Stilanalyse.

Andinmy haste, I said: “Allmenare Liars” 1 —Psalms 116:11 The Original Lie Philosophical analysis often reveals and seldom solves paradoxes. To quote Stephen Read: A paradox arises when an unacceptable conclusion is supported by a plausible argument from apparently acceptable premises. [...] So three di?erent reactions to the paradoxes are possible: to show that the r- soning is fallacious; or that the premises are not true after all; or that 2 the conclusion can in fact be accepted. There are sometimes elaborate ways to endorse a paradoxical conc- sion. One might be prepared to concede that indeed there are a number of grains that make a heap, but no possibility to know this number. However, some paradoxes are more threatening than others; showing the conclusiontobeacceptableisnotaseriousoption,iftheacceptanceleads to triviality. Among semantic paradoxes, the Liar (in any of its versions) 3 o?ers as its conclusion a bullet no one would be willing to bite. One of the most famous versions of the Liar Paradox was proposed by Epimenides, though its attribution to the Cretan poet and philosopher has only a relatively recent history. It seems indeed that Epimenides was mentioned neither in ancient nor in medieval treatments of the Liar 1 Jewish Publication Society translation. 2 Read [1].
