Cool. As language and such is my hobby (I guess its my job, too, come to think of it), I'd add Bertrand Russel (Russell's Paradox) as somebody who pointed out the ultimate logical absurdity that arises from self-reference.

Ritual disclaimer: these hobby-ideas are not any more true than a collection of Hummel figurines that (thankfully) don't sit on the mantle I don't have in my tiny one bedroom apartment :-)

Peace

It is a glass statuette which functions as a dust collector and knick-knack, a thing to sit on a shelf. Some people collect them.
