| The Seven Truths Of Fuzzy Logic |

| | This wide-spread belief comes in two flavors, the first holds that fuzzy **logic** violates common sense and the well proven **laws** of **logic**, and the second, perhaps inspired by its name, holds that fuzzy systems produce answers that are somehow ad-hoc, fuzzy, or vague. |

| | The feeling persists that fuzzy **logic** systems somehow, through their handling of imprecise and approximate concepts, produce results that are approximations of the answer we would get if we had access to a model that worked on hard facts and crisp information. |

| | Much of the discomfort with fuzzy **logic** stems from the implicit assumption that a single ``right'' **logical** system exists and to the degree that another system deviates from this right and correct **logic** it is in error. |
