The book applies the principles and insights of Fuzzy Logic to the complexity of social life. It draws on the full range of the social sciences, including some of the most up-to-date work on the escalating complexities of post modern life, e.g. new information technologies in a global world, new forms of consciousness and identity, new relationships between humans, machines, nature and environment. The volume is interdisciplinary, combining expertise from Fuzzy Logic and the Postmodern Social Sciences, synthesising and applying concepts and methods of Fuzzy Logic in innovative ways to the world of social life. It gives readers from the social sciences a comprehensive, exciting and practical guide for applying Fuzzy Logic, while bringing a rich body of social problems and concepts on to the agenda for researchers in Fuzzy Logic and related fields.
