With so much contradiction and polarities to explore, it is easy to see how many aspects of the story remain untouched. Since

  • Defining German Nationality: How German Identity Rose from Contradiction

In contrast, a contradiction in will does not yield a logically impossible world, but there is a contradiction in willing what

    whether any contradictions occur. To universalise our maxim, we must imagine our maxim as a universal law over all rational agents, which is followed by all (422). In order to fail the formulation, the universalisation of the maxim must yield a con-tradiction. The desirability of the world with the universalised law is irrelevant to whether a maxim pass-es or fails the test. The first contradiction that can occur is that of conception. When the maxim is universalised, a contradiction may arise in

A building is basically comprised of a variety of paradoxes, such as outdoor and indoor, primary spaces and secondary space and so on. In Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture, Robert Venturi states that “Blatant simplification means bland architecture” and elaborates on the necessity of complexity and contradiction architecturally
