For more than 2000 years, Western science has been based on absolutes. Things are black or white, alive or dead, all or nothing. As human beings we know the world is not really like this, that degrees exist between the extremes. But until now science has been unable to accommodate these uncertainties. Fuzzy logic is a scientific revolution that has been waiting to happen for decades - and its central tenets will dramatically change the relationship human beings have with the world. The question is to what degree.
In this absorbing, iconoclastic account of the head-spinning possibilities of fuzzy technology, Bart Kosko, fuzzy logic's most famous and combative apostle, urges us to abandon the debilitating binary world and turn to the East, for the future will be fuzzy.
