These methodologies found first applications in the life sciences. One part of this paper presents some aspects of the history of philosophy of life sciences. The second part focuses on a generalization in a(More)
This contribution deals with developments in the history of philosophy, logic, and mathematics during the time before and up to the beginning of fuzzy logic.

Zadeh in 1964/1965, it should be noted that older concepts of ‘‘vagueness’’ and ‘‘haziness’’ had previously been discussed in philosophy,(More)
