Fuzzy Rationality: A Critique and Methodological Unity of by Kofi Kissi Dompere

By Kofi Kissi Dompere

This monograph is certain in its orientation. it's first of its style dedicated to bringing to the final medical group, the epistemic starting place of fuzzy paradigm composed of its good judgment and arithmetic of reasoning. it's first of a series of treaties on fuzzy decision-choice rationality. The monograph provides the constitution of basic rationality and issues of access of classical, bounded and comparable rationalities. Fuzzy decision-choice rationality is then brought as a critique and methodological cohesion of classical and bounded rationalities.

The critique and methodological team spirit commence with basic epistemics of technology and the position that rationality performs in wisdom construction resulting in a view of idea of data in addition to an method of wisdom illustration in help of decision-choice tactics. The epistemics of technological know-how and data creation take us to a severe exam of relative meanings and representations of data and data to create an information-knowledge constitution and the way such constitution impacts and is helping to outline decision-choice rationality. it truly is argued that each one different types of postulated rationality are subsumed less than the optimum fuzzy rationality as a logical envelope. In so doing, a dialogue is made to elucidate the diversities and similarities among choice and selection, and the way they relate to ontological and epistemological difficulties of rationality, human intelligence and decision-choice processes.

The ontological and epistemological difficulties of decision-choice rationality are offered as composing of challenge of rationality as an characteristic of decision-choice brokers and challenge of rationality as an incredible country of decision-choice method that needs to replicate rationality as an characteristic. right here the classical and fuzzy rationalities are unique and unified lower than the concept of optimum decision-choice rationality the place Euler’s mini-max precept principles as a rule substitution-transformation procedure in categorial dynamics of actual-potential duality.

The monograph is concluded with discussions on ideology and its results on information-knowledge build reasoning and decision-choice rationality in either medical and non-scientific theories. Ideology is seen as protecting belt of society and its authorised mode of reasoning. The constitution of revolution in ideology is then with regards to Kuhn’s paradigm, Lakatos’ examine application, Popper’s cluster of theories and Kadrov’s examine framework. it truly is then argued that optimum fuzzy rationality offers an entire unified hide over the optimum decision-choice rationality of classical, bounded and different rationalities with a tremendous dialogue on cost-benefit balances of ideology in social decision-choice area during which people function. the focal point of the ebook is on rationality and information construction in fuzzy and non-fuzzy tactics that represent epistemic solidarity in thought of data. The e-book can be of curiosity to these operating within the parts of economies, decision-choice theories, philosophy of sciences, epistemology, arithmetic, machine technology, engineering, cognitive psychology, fuzzy arithmetic, arithmetic of fuzzy-stochastic strategies and phenomena of vagueness and ambiguity.

Example text

Every investigator in any specific area of science directly or indirectly works with some degree of philosophical rationality. Similarly, every investigator, in any specific area of philosophy directly or indirectly works with some degree of scientific rationality. Both investigators in the enterprise of knowledge production are constrained by socially acceptable conditions of cognitive rationality in the sense of providing admissible set of rules of general knowledge production that provides guidance for both philosophical and 12 1 General Epistemics on Science and Rationality scientific rationalities.

The decision-choice rationality for knowledge production, given the parametric characterization of the environment, may be stated as: max π ( A i ) Ti st. 7) 30 1 General Epistemics on Science and Rationality There are three sub-rationalities involved in this classical cognitive process. There is a set of conditions of rational explanation (rational explanans) that relates to the theory’s constructed explanatory decision rules and the rational praedicens that relates to the constructed predictive decision rules and thirdly, there is a set of conditions for rational selection of a preferred theory on the basis of best explanans and praedicens.

Knowledge limitativeness places us under conditions of stochastic rationality. Knowledge vagueness places us under conditions of fuzzy rationality. When the two are combined we find ourselves placed under conditions fuzzy-stochastic or stochastic-fuzzy rationalities The history of human cognition may be seen as an enveloping of the dynamic behavior of philosophy-science duality induced by the collective decision-choice process. In this respect, unless one realizes the power of such enveloping and living unity of science and philosophy, then on the road to scientific truth or what there is, one may tend to deal with superficialities of either conflict or harmony in the cognitive process.
