As an aside, I note that whereas Lukasiewicz, Korzybski, and Zadeh seem quietly non-Aristotelian, Bart Kosko, though he does accept two-valued formulations as a subset of fuzzy formulating, cumulatively comes across as anti-Aristotelian. For example, "What makes society turn is science, and the language of science is math, and the structure of math is logic, and the bedrock of logic is Aristotle, and that's what goes out with fuzzy." (Quoted in McNeill and Freiberger, Fuzzy Logic, p. 45.) In spite of this, there is much of value and importance for students of fuzzy systems to read in Kosko book ( Fuzzy Thinking); after all, it is written by a leading post-Zadeh scholar- practitioner.
