Nic Weaver on the liar paradox

I have not yet read all of Nic Weaver’s comment on the liar paradox however the beginning is interesting enough to mention it here.

Edit: If I understand him correctly, then he claims that the law of excluded middle is not applicable for what he calls ‘heuristic concepts’, which are (and here I interpret freely) concepts with some immanent circularity.
