Conjunction-based sorites: A misguided objection to degree-theoretic (fuzzy) solutions to sorites paradoxes [Book Review]
Journal of Philosophical Logic 39 (1):1 - 4 (2010)
In 1987, Crispin Wright argued that degree-theoretic (fuzzy) solutions to the Sorites paradox fail because the solutions do not work when the paradox is restated using a conjunctive major premise. I show that Wright is incorrect: degree-theoretic solutions also work when the paradox is stated with a conjunctive major premise.
