Book Description

January 14, 2008 0521707579 978-0521707572 1
This volume is an accessible introduction to the subject of many-valued and fuzzy logic suitable for use in relevant advanced undergraduate and graduate courses. The text opens with a discussion of the philosophical issues that give rise to fuzzy logic - problems arising from vague language - and returns to those issues as logical systems are presented. For historical and pedagogical reasons, three-valued logical systems are presented as useful intermediate systems for studying the principles and theory behind fuzzy logic.

5.0 out of 5 stars lucid and excellent overview March 25, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Merrie Bergmann's work is extremely readable and lucid on a difficult and convoluted topic. Bergmann was responsible for the lucid semantic sections of Bergmann, Moor, and Nelson's The Logic Book. IMHO this is by far the best introductory symbolic logic text available. Bergmann has a real talent for presenting formal logical ideas of a most advanced sort in an accessible manner. Bergman's treatment is highly up to date. She is both formally proficient and philosophically astute. Despite her philosophical ability she had to move from the Philosophy Department at Dartmouth to the Computer Science department at Smith, hardly a salary demotion, but the partial loss to the phlosophy profession of a highly insightful and illuminating thinker.

Her major focus is on the use of many-valued and fuzzy logics to deal with vagueness. She understands a fuzzy logic as an infinite valued logic, rather than a probabilistic logic that assigns a probability weight to propositions. One cannot do better than this work on this topic
