Vagueness-Adaptive Logic: A Pragmatical Approach to Sorites Paradoxes

Studia Logica 75 (3):383 - 411 (2003)
Abstract
This paper defends a pragmatical approach to vagueness. The vagueness-adaptive logic VAL is a good reconstruction of and an excellent instrument for human reasoning processes in which vague predicates are involved. Apart from its proof-theory and semantics, a Sorites-treating model based on it is presented, disarming the paradox. The paper opens perspectives with respect to the construction of theories by means of vague predicates.
