The two cultures of logic

Kees van Deemter

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The chapter argues that logic suffers from a division analogous to C.P.Snow's "two cultures". One culture embraces multiple truth values, whereas the other adheres to the classic two truth values under all circumstances. We argue that progress can be made when logicians look beyond the standard formulations of Fuzzy Logic, and that the theory and applications of language and communication will benefit.
