Buridan's donkey (lat.Asinus Buridani inter duo prata - Buridan's donkey between two lawns) is a philosophical paradox named after Jean Buridan, rector of the Sorbonne University in Paris in the XIV century. It is not clear for what reason, they gave the name of Sophism Buridan, in his works he never mentioned this or other donkeys. But the students are sharp in their tongues, so one can only guess what the rector was guilty of. The essence of the paradox of Buridan's donkey is that if he is given two identical haystacks, he will not be able to make a choice and will die of hunger. Buridan's donkeys are called indecisive people who are unable to make a volitional decision.
