Useless Philosophical Puzzles (1)
For your own entertainment and fun at department parties, I present you this
Puzzle: Give an example of contradictory properties.
- Contradictory, not contrary or subcontrary.
- Pairs obtained with the use of negation (e.g. Φ and a-/not-/un-/in-Φ) are not acceptable. I.e., go for contradictory properties expressed by positive predicates.
- Controversial pairs (including vague distinctions, or distinctions challenged by various systems of thought, y compris religious) are not acceptable.
- Examples in English or Romanian will be considered.
The lucky winner will be honored at the top of the sidebar for a month.
