Title: (Information) Paradox Regained?
Abstract: I will discuss some recent work by Tim Maudlin concerning Black Hole Information Loss. I will argue that there is a paradox, in the straightforward sense that there are propositions that appear true but which are incompatible with one another, and discuss its significance. I will also discuss Maudlin’s response to the paradox.
