Reviews

It is an excellent book: clearly written and packed full of interesting ideas and arguments. Researchers in the area must read itshould become a cornerstone of the literature. . . . The technical material is self-contained and well presented, and the book would suit a graduate or an advanced undergraduate class not afraid of the odd bit of elementary mathematical formalism. * J. R. G. Williams, Mind *
Both a sharply written introduction to the philosophical logic of vagueness and a persuasive defence of Smith's favoured theory * David Ripley, Analysis *
one of the most important contributions on vagueness in the last ten years, and for years to come . . . profound and original . . . succeeds in promoting a new and inspiring conception of vagueness * Paul Egre, Australasian Journal of Philosophy *
a very significant and important contribution to the debate. * Dominic Hyde, Bulletin of Symbolic Logicy *
The book is clear, focussed, technically deft, and has impressive vision . . . a must-read for anyone interested in vagueness. * Graham Priest, History and Philosophy of Logic *
brimming with philosophical insight and formal niceties. It deserves to, and surely will, generate much discussion * John Collins, Philosophical Quarterly *
required reading for anyone working on the logic and semantics of vagueness. * Roy Cook, Theoria *
