Postmodernism and fuzzy systems

Postmodernism and fuzzy systems Affinities and shared ideas may be found at the foundations of both fuzzy set theory and the western philosophical movement commonly referred to as Postmodernism. The interest in highlighting these affinities is driven by the fact that the ideas and beliefs that are questioned by both these movements are exactly those which stand (or used to stand) as foundations of both western philosophy and science, and have their roots in an Aristotelian view of the world. By direct comparison between concepts drawn from passages of the main philosophers of the Postmodern movement and fundamentals of fuzzy set theory, parallelisms and commonalities are brought to the surface. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Kybernetes Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Affinities and shared ideas may be found at the foundations of both fuzzy set theory and the western philosophical movement commonly referred to as Postmodernism. The interest in highlighting these affinities is driven by the fact that the ideas and beliefs that are questioned by both these movements are exactly those which stand (or used to stand) as foundations of both western philosophy and science, and have their roots in an Aristotelian view of the world. By direct comparison between concepts drawn from passages of the main philosophers of the Postmodern movement and fundamentals of fuzzy set theory, parallelisms and commonalities are brought to the surface.
