['p@ r.. doks] = /ˈpærədɒks/
  1. A paradox is a situation in which something seems both true and false.
    When you increase your knowledge, you see how little you know. You see how much you still have to learn. When you really know a lot, you can say: “I know that I know nothing.” This is a paradox.
    The philosopher thinks that every paradox is an illusion.
    My thinking must be wrong because I came to a paradox.
