We study the epistemological significance of paradoxes in cosmology. We pointed out the heuristic role of paradoxes. Thesis of Frank Wilczek that paradoxes are good in physics is illustrated.. While all theses are formulated on an example of the photometric Olbers paradox they have general significance for cosmology. We show that solution of paradoxes can be understood as an additional presence of loops with a positive feedback in a scheme illustrating how a problem situation in physics is solved. Because cosmology in his development meets many anomalies and paradoxes in the past and future which are solved we have imagination the cosmology as a physical science in a state of permanent crisis.
