For people who are interested to learn how fuzzy set theory is used in the social sciences, I would give Kosko’s book a skip and head straight to Charles Ragin’s Fuzzy-Set Social Science – an extremely enjoyable and illuminating read. He could certainly have done with less comparisons. HyperionJun 30, – Mathematics – pages. Apr 21, Rob Melich rated it really liked it.

Don’t know how to explain but I learned a thing and two about it. Unfortunately, “fuzzy logic” fuzsy oversimplified in the collective consciousness, and then was dismissed as nothing more than thiking. Bah – now I feel dirty having got annoyed by this book!

Kosko suggests that thhinking order to compete we in the West will have to open ourselves to new ways of thinking – fuzzy ways of thinking.


Long sections are dedicated to claiming how clever the author is – alongside with his mentor and some other people he likes – and about how all of them have suffered because their talent and theories have been misunderstood by a bunch of nitwits. As a person with a postgraduate research degree I respect a DE or DSc a lot more than multiple PhDs which, if you have the discipline to nut out problem, are a matter of time, financial backing and access to the academic publishing world, rather than a show of superior skill.

In fuzzy logic, he introduced fuzzy cognitive maps[3] [4] fuzzy subsethood, [5] additive fuzzy systems, [6] fuzzy approximation theorems, [7] optimal fuzzy rules, [8] fuzzy associative memories, various neural-based adaptive fuzzy systems, [6] ratio measures of fuzziness, [5] the shape of fuzzy sets, [9] the conditional variance of fuzzy systems, [10] and the geometric view of finite fuzzy sets as points in hypercubes and its relationship to the ongoing debate of fuzziness versus probability.

He is notable as a researcher and popularizer of fuzzy logicneural networksand noise, and author of several trade books and textbooks on these and related subjects of machine intelligence.

It was certainly informative.

The first antiscience science book, Fuzzy Thinking is a truly important book that can forever change the way you look at the world. Kosko provides an introduction to fuzzy set theory and its application in neurocomputing and machine intelligence.

Not a bad introduction to the concept, but I remember disliking the author’s writing style. Probably more or less ok. Besides, broadening math for its thinikng sake is always valuable. He is an attorney licensed in California and federal court, and worked part-time as a law clerk for the Los Angeles District Attorney ‘s Office. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

Fuzzy logic even applies to ethical thknking. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Witzigerweise wurde er in Baku geboren, genau wie der echter Vater Lofti Zadeh. Unfortunately, he decided to make up a subject, and even after he did that, he forgot to stick to it.

In neural networks, Kosko introduced the unsupervised technique of differential Hebbian learning[11] sometimes called the “differential synapse,” and most famously the BAM or bidirectional associative memory [12] family of feedback neural architectures, with corresponding global stability theorems.
