Paradox - the adjective with Greek-Latin roots has long since become part of the vernacular. With him seemingly contradictory statements, states and sensitivities are called, which oppose the common opinion. In terms of behavior, facts, feelings and people, a deeper understanding of paradox often results in a clearer understanding of the facts and circumstances. This ambiguity can lead to contradictory considerations in society such as literature, music and visual art, have a liberating effect and resolve contradictions.
