I'm currently reading the book mentioned above; I'm wondering about

something...

He attempts to define the membership function of a set by using

what he calls ``calibrational propositions'' -- the idea is that if

you ask 70 people if John is tall, and 70 of them say ``yes,'' then

mu(tall) = .7. While this seems to do a good job of capturing common

word usage, it's not at all clear to me that it captures the fuzzy

behavior of the ``tall'' set; it seems probabilistic rather than

fuzzy.

So, what are other people's reactions?
