The paradox - a situation (the statement, assertion, opinion or conclusion), which may exist in reality, but has no logical explanation. It should distinguish between irony and Apor. Apor, in contrast to the paradox, is fictional, logically true, the situation (the statement, allegation, judgments or conclusions), which can not exist in reality. The paradox - unexpected, unusual, original and contradictions themselves, assumptions, generally, the traditional view of common sense or the content and / or shape. Paradoxical is the antonym of orthodoxy - the proven, traditional. "Orthodox" - literally "next dominant tradition". In spoken language, often means surprising, in any event, the absurd, and incomprehensible. It can be used to give meaning color, giving a brightness or a speech.

For example, uayldovsky "Divorce made in heaven". The paradox - it is always a half-truth and that, as Oscar Wilde said, "the best that we can achieve, because absolute truth does not exist". The paradox of its stylized form like aphorism. In a familiar paradox of truth collapses in front, and even derided. For example, "I have heard so much slander you, that I have no doubt: You are - a wonderful man!" (O. Wilde), "The mutual incomprehension - the most suitable framework for a marriage" (O. Wilde).
