    We argue that standard definitions of ‘vagueness’ prejudice the question of how best to deal with the phenomenon of vagueness. In particular, the usual understanding of ‘vagueness’ in terms of borderline cases, where the latter are thought of as truth-value gaps, begs the question against the subvaluational approach. According to this latter approach, borderline cases are inconsistent (i.e., glutty not gappy). We suggest that a definition of ‘vagueness’ should be general enough to accommodate any genuine contender in the debate over (...)

    We explore the vagueness among property, plant, and equipment (PPE), intangible asset and inventory accounts that leads to liquidity level misrepresentation. Through the configurational approach, we identified five arrangements according to the intensity of property rights transference. Our purpose is to highlight the epistemic vagueness on liquidity order classification of assets' items, in order to justify additional disclosure or other regulation strategies to reduce informational asymmetry. Even though IASB's accounting regulation accepts the presentation of balance sheet (BS) classified by items' (...)

    This article aims to examine the import of science to the contemporary philosophical debate on ontic vagueness. It is shown, first, that our best theory on the structure of mater, quantum mechanics, clearly ascribes vague properties to objects. This point is explained by both a general theoretical analysis and by some simple examples. The advantage of these examples over that which has been hotly discussed in the literature is underlined. Secondly, it is pointed out that stronger evidence for the existence (...)

    I argue that the ‘aoristic’ operators, which are intended to describe the logic of vagueness, do not form a standard modal logic. I redefine the operators so that they do form a standard modal logic, provide a semantics of that logic, and argue that the logic is not as strong as standardly claimed.

    Available from UMI in association with The British Library. Requires signed TDF. ;An attempt is made to find the proper response to paradoxes of the sorites-type. In PART I, a chain argument is given with 'tall' in which it seems that a false conclusion is derived by repeated steps of MPP from true premises. In particular, each of the conditional premises is derived by UE from a so-called inductive premise sustained by familiar claims that 'tall' is both vague and observational. (...)

    A plausible thought about vagueness is that it involves semantic incompleteness. To say that a predicate is vague is to say (at the very least) that its extension is incompletely specified. Where there is incomplete specification of extension there is indeterminacy, an indeterminacy between various ways in which the specification of the predicate might be completed or sharpened. In this paper we show that this idea is bound to founder by presenting an argument to the effect that there are vague (...)

    The story of the Ship of Theseus is a familiar puzzle in the literature on change and identity. Our intuitions about identity through time seem to commit us to the truth of each of the following claims about Theseus's ship: the Original Ship = the Rebuilt Ship ; the Original Ship = the Continuous Successor Ship ; and the Rebuilt Ship $\not=$ the Continuous Successor Ship . Of course, through are jointly inconsistent with the fact that identity is transitive and (...)

    According to a popular, plausible, but also controversial view about the nature of vagueness, vagueness is a matter of semantic indecision. I show that, even if «I» is vague and the view of vagueness as semantic indecision is correct, I could be a material composite object all the same.

    Some philosophers seem to think that borderline cases provide further cases of apparent faultless disagreement. This chapter argues against such a suggestion. It contends that with respect to borderline cases, people typically do not respond by taking a view, in contrast to what is the case in genuine cases of apparent faultless disagreement. It shows that the claim of the chapter is indeed respected, and is accounted for by paradigm cases of semantic and epistemic views on the nature of vagueness. (...)

    Vague predicates are subject to forced-march sorites reasoning. Given a vague predicate Π, it is thus at least possible that there be a sequence of objects each of which is potentially predicable with Π meeting the following two conditions.

    Edgington has proposed a degree-theoretic account of vagueness that yields a highly elegant solution to the sorites paradox. This paper applies her account to the paradox of Theseus’ ship, which is generally classified among the paradoxes of material constitution and not as a sorites paradox.

    Sergio Tenenbaum and Diana Raffman contend that ‘vague projects’ motivate radical revisions to orthodox, utility-maximising rational choice theory. Their argument cannot succeed if such projects merely ground instances of the paradox of the sorites, or heap. Tenenbaum and Raffman are not blind to this, and argue that Warren Quinn’s Puzzle of the Self-Torturer does not rest on the sorites. I argue that their argument both fails to generalise to most vague projects, and is ineffective in the case of the Self-Torturer (...)

  49. Luke Elson, Borderline Cases and the Collapsing Principle.
    John Broome has argued that value incommensurability is vagueness, by appeal to a controversial ‘collapsing principle’ about comparative indeterminacy. I offer a new counterexample to the collapsing principle. That principle allows us to derive an outright contradiction from the claim that some object is a borderline case of some predicate. But if there are no borderline cases, then the principle is empty. The collapsing principle is either false or empty.
