Vagueness, Logic, and Ontology

In Darragh Byrne & Max Kölbel (eds.), Arguing About Language. Routledge. pp. 135-154 (2009)
Abstract
Remember the story of the most-most? It’s the story of that club in New York where people are the most of every type. There is the hairiest bald man and the baldest hairy man; the shortest giant and the tallest dwarf; the smartest idiot and the stupidest wise man. They are all there, including honest thieves and crippled acrobats. On Saturday night they have a party, eat, drink, dance. Then they have a contest. “And if you can tell the hairiest bald man from the baldest hairy man—we are told—you get a prize.”.
