Causal Modeling with Fuzzy Cognitive Maps
In contemporary social and behavioral science, fuzzy logic is still rather unpopular, perhaps because of its major affiliation with electrical engineering, industrial systems control, and computer science. However, in view of the fact that fuzzy logic aims equally well at a formalization of the cognitive processes humans employ in their daily activities in private and working environments, we conclude that sociologists, political scientists, and psychologists are grossly mistaking the real impact of fuzzy logic upon cognition and action, because it provides a new framework for knowledge engineering.
