    Dear All,

    I am referring to the following claim by Ch. Morgan in Routledge
    Encyclopedia of Philosophy:
    "Zadeh claimed that the standard metatheoretical notions such as consistency
    and completeness are not relevant to fuzzy logic".

    Does that imply that fuzzy logic is somehow immune from Goedel's proofs of
    inconsistency and incompletness (which bear important consequences to AI, as
    demonstrated by Lucas and Pernrose)?
    And if yes, in what sense it might be argued so?

    Would be grateful for any references as well.

    Regards,

    Jonas Dagys
