Abstract

Fuzzy logic as a basis for modeling concepts was rejected by psychologists because of an influential paper published by Osherson and Smith in 1981. While Osherson and Smith were important and influential psychologists, they were not logicians. A critical analysis of their work reveals a series of tired arguments.
