Conference paper
Part of the Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing book series (STUDFUZZ, volume 81)


Fuzziology [1,2,3] studies fuzziness of human knowing, – its sources, nature and dynamics not in an endeavor to reduce or eliminate it but to understand and transcend its limitations so that instead of being considered as an obstacle, it could serve as a stimulus for realization of human creativity.
