Editorial Reviews


"I think that the book is a simple and accessible introduction to the theory of fuzzy sets and it includes many examples, formulae, figures, and tables which illustrate its contents. The presentation of the book and the academic content are very careful, which make for pleasant reading." (Marinano Ruiz Espejo 2007-03-20)

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By F.H.Navarro, Fontana, CA on October 24, 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Fuzzy Set Theory: Applications in the Social Sciences is a good detailed penetration of fuzzy set theory for social scientists who want to gain a greater understanding of the range of fuzzy set theory applications. If you don't have a good understanding of set theory notation and set operations you will not appreciate a good majority of the book. The book could have been improved by addressing the use of fuzzy set theory to illustrate graded levels of fit to personality prototypes, and offered a few more examples of how to display fuzzy sets.
