S is the set of all sets that do not include themselves.

Now does the barber shave himself or not? Is S a member of S or not? Unless one sneakily attempts to escape the logical trap by positing that the barber is a woman, a machine, or an alien, either answer leads to a contradiction. The existence of such contradictions introduces an uncertainty into mathematical logic itself, not just into the correctness of part of its consensus. That this uncertainty could not in any way be resolved was shown in 1931 by Kurt Gödel when he showed that no set of axioms used to describe a mathematical system could prove both the consistency and completeness of the system.

A set S contains all sets which do not contain themselves. Does S contain itself?
