The liar paradox is an ancient conundrum of logic. When an attempt
is made to assign a truth value to the statement: ``This statement
is false;'' a vicious cycle of contradiction ensues. A careful
consideration of context, using a technique involving
context diagrams, leads to a clear resolution of this paradox.
In addition to context diagrams, the mathematical notion of a
meta-context is also needed for resolving the liar paradox.
Meta-contextual resolutions of related paradoxes, such as the
strengthened liar paradox, are also described.
