    Vagueness. Taxonomy: Logical Fallacy > Informal Fallacy > Vagueness Subfallacy: The Fallacy of the Heap Exposition: Vagueness is a characteristic of language, specifically of those words and phrases that classify or qualify objects, that is, common nouns and adjectives. Such a word or phrase divides the world of objects into those it applies to 1, and those to which it doesn't apply. ‘Vagueness and Language Use’ was organized as part of the research program Cognitive «Origins of Vagueness», funded by the French National Agency of Research (ANR). We are grateful to the ANR for making this event possible, and to the Ecole Normale Supérieure for welcoming it in its buildings.

    vagueness in thought But, like supervaluationists, epistemicists tend to focus on vagueness as a feature of language, as opposed to vagueness as a feature of thought) We have just considered two accounts of the nature of vagueness that take vagueness to be some sort of linguistic or mental phenomenon and thereby imply the orthodoxy.   The book ends with an appendix on Waismann on open texture and analyticity. I will focus in this review on what I take to be Shapiro's main philosophical claims about vagueness. An equally large part of the book is devoted to developing a formal framework, but I will focus on the underlying philosophical motivation.

    Vagueness is the first comprehensive treatment of this increasingly important topic in metaphysics and the philosophy of logic and language. Students in these areas and researchers in artifical intelligence and linguistics will find its non-technical approach s: 2. Modernist Fiction and Vagueness marries the artistic and philosophical versions of vagueness, linking the development of literary modernism to changes in philosophy. This book argues that the problem of vagueness - language's unavoidable imprecision - led to transformations in both fiction and philosophy in the early twentieth century.

Bringing together leading scholars working on the topic of vagueness in philosophy and in law, this book fosters a dialogue between philosophers and legal scholars by examining how philosophers conceive vagueness in law from their theoretical perspective and how legal theorists make use of philosophical theories of vagueness.

The chapters of. Vagueness leads to indeterminacies in the application of the law in many cases. This book responds to the challenges that those indeterminacies pose to a theory of law and adjudication. The book puts controversies in legal theory in a new light, using arguments in the philosophy of language to offer an explanation of the unclarities that arise in borderline cases for the application of vague.
