Relative Verity of Bordeline Sentence
Keywords:vagueness, borderline sentence, relative verity, super valuation
AbstractThe paper represents main ideas of my theory “Relative verity logic” (RVL), that combines advantages of two contrary approaches to vagueness (many-valued theory and supervaluationism). RVL allows the fruitful treatment of borderline cases while saving all the classical tautologies and inference rules; and on top of all this, it also avoids the trap of the sorites paradoxes.
