Fuzziness of the West and the East
One of the secrets of the success of fuzzy thinking has been its attitude to natural language and the human thinking encoded in it. Where classic forms of science distrust human languages and the ideas that have evolved over many millennia, fuzziology is open to these rich traditions. Fuzziology recognises their value in their own human sphere. It can ‘compute’ with forms of wisdom as well as with perceptions and words. In this chapter our aim is not to rewrite the history of thought as a progression towards the climactic moment of fuzziology, nor to argue that fuzziology is just a new version of some very old ideas. The connections over time we see are full of jumps and discontinuities.
