Girard’s paradox shows that having two levels of impredicativity is inconsistent. I will present a simplified version of Girard’s paradox (based on a paper by Thierry Coquand) and compare it to Russell’s paradox (also in a version proposed by Thierry). I am also going to discuss what needs to be done to unsimplify both paradoxes.
