I stumbled upon the quotation
Intelligence is to spot paradoxes. Wisdom is to live by them.
from Raheel Farooq according to goodreads.com.
I am here not so much interested in the difference between intelligence and wisdom as seems to be the main point of the quote. I am here rather interested about the concept that it is wise, or good to live by paradoxes and more particularly about whether paradoxes are a necessary element of our representation of the world and set of values.
Are paradoxes a necessary element of everyone representation of the world and/or everyone set of values? Is it (theoretically or practically) possible to be a philosopher and yet be free from any paradox in the logical interaction between elements we believe in? Are we condemn to live with paradoxes?
