Abstract

There is an obvious paradox concerning nothing(ness). It is something—for example, we can think about it. But almost by definition, it is nothing. Emanuele Severino has tried to solve this paradox by drawing a crucial distinction. In this paper, I consider whether his approach is successful. I argue that this resolves one way of articulating the paradox but not a more acute version.
