Paradoxes definitions

Webster's 1913 Dictionary

Paradox Par`a*dox, n.; pl. Paradoxes. [F. paradoxe, L. paradoxum, fr. Gr. ?; ? beside, beyond, contrary to + ? to think, suppose, imagine. See Para-, and Dogma.] A tenet or proposition contrary to received opinion; an assertion or sentiment seemingly contradictory, or opposed to common sense; that which in appearance or terms is absurd, but yet may be true in fact. A gloss there is to color that paradox, and make it appear in show not to be altogether unreasonable. --Hooker. This was sometime a paradox, but now the time gives it proof. --Shak. Hydrostatic paradox. See under Hydrostatic.
