Refutation of Carroll's Tortoise and Achilles as a Paradox © Copyright 2018 by Colin James III All Rights Reserved.

Authors: Colin James III

A: "Things that are equal to the same are equal to each other" B: "The two sides of this triangle are things that are equal to the same" Therefore Z: "The two sides of this triangle are equal to each other" The argument as rendered is tautologous and hence a theorem. Because it is not contradictory: this refutes Carroll's tortoise and Achilles as a paradox.
