The Theory of the Knowledge Square and the Information Structure: The Points of Entry and Departure

Part of the Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing book series (STUDFUZZ, volume 289)

Abstract

In a number of my writings on philosophy of science, the theory of knowledge and foundations of fuzzy laws of thought, I view them from the vantage point of the theories of economic behavior, complexity of social dynamics, self-correcting systems, decision-choice systems and synergetic behavior of systems rather than as a philosopher or a mathematician. From this vantage point, I introduced an analytical concept of theknowledge square to allow me to deal with the problems of the relative positions of the critical concepts of exactness and inexactness in the general knowledge-production process. The problems of exactness and inexactness as seen in the exact-inexact duality are related to quantity and quality of information structures in categorial conversions and epistemic transformations of information signals into knowledge elements in the epistemological space [R2.3] [R2.10] [R11.21] [R11.22].
