Quantum mechanical correlations have been thought of as a paradox or, alternatively, as a sign of incompleteness of standard quantum theory. Certainly, from a logical point of view, paradox and incompleteness are not equivalent. The concept of "paradox" is thus analyzed and the possible ways out discussed. The so-called EPR-paradox is recast in an elementary logical form of a "debate argument", i.e., where two seemingly sound arguments contradict each other. A way out of it, that of adding new dimensions, is discussed and a very general mathematical formulation if offered.
