									Paradox Worksheet                       Name: ___________________________ Period____

           The essence of a paradox is the ability to examine an item or and issue and realize
           that it is composed of opposite forces that could cancel each other out. Paradox
           forces us to look at both sides of an issue. After being able to do this, it is
           important that we are able to take a stand and assert an opinion. This helps us think
           critically, something we all want to do to be mature, creative thinkers.
