Fixed point: a point that satisfies the equation f (x) = x is a fixed point i.e. x is mapped to itself. S.A. Kripke based his alternative theory of truth from 1975 on fixed points in order to resolve the problem of paradoxes when dealing with self-reference. (Kripke, S., 1975. Outline of a Theory of Truth, The Journal of Philosophy, 72 690-716.). See also self-reference, paradoxes, liar paradox, truth theory.
