The word origin of paradox comes from the Latin paradoxum, which in turn came from the Greek paradoxos. It’s a combination of the ancient Greek words para and dokein.
Para- is a prefix that means "beyond," while dokein is a verb that means "to think."
Combined, paradoxos, or paradox, means "beyond thinking." A paradox is an idea that forces you to ponder beyond the normal, expected limits of your thinking.
