Epimenides in Korean

Postby sronicker » 2012-08-27, 0:52

I've been reading Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid and I started thinking about the Epimenides paradox mentioned at the beginning, and as I speak some Korean I was wondering if I could reach out to the philosophic community to see if there's an answer for the paradox that comes out of East-Asian philosophy.

Here's my original question:

Can anyone familiar with east-Asian philosophy explain how one would reconcile this paradox?

전 문장은 맞았다.

That's my personal translation of the two-statement version:

The following sentence is false.

The previous sentence is true.

Since all the explanations I've heard all come out of western philosophy I was wondering if other methods of philosophy have come up with other explanations.
