LOGICALPARADOX is a New York Times Crossword puzzle answer that we have spotted 1 time.

A logical paradox refers to a statement or reasoning that leads to a self-contradictory or logically impossible conclusion. It is typically characterized by a situation where a statement affirms itself to be false or true, thereby creating a contradiction. The specific clue you provided, "This statement is false," is known as the liar paradox. It creates a paradox because if the statement is true, then it must be false, but if it is false, then it must be true. This loop of contradictory logic makes it impossible for the statement to be consistently interpreted as either true or false.
