It is necessary to practice methodological doubt, like Descartes, in - der to loosen the hold of mental habits; and it is necessary to cultivate logical imagination, in order to have a number of hypotheses at c- mand, and not to be the slave of the one which common sense has r- dered easy to imagine. These two processes, of doubting the familiar and imagining the unfamiliar, are corrective, and form the chief part of the mental training required for a philosopher. Bertrand Russell At every stage and in all circumstances knowledge is incomplete and provisional, conditioned and limited by the historical circumstances under which it was acquired, including the means and methods used for gaining it and the historically conditioned assumptions and categories used in the formulation of ideas and conclusions. Maurice Cornforth This monograph is the second in the series of meta-theoretic analysis of fuzzy paradigm and its contribution and possible contribution to formal reasoning in order to free the knowledge production process from the ridge frame of the classical paradigm that makes its application to soft and inexact sciences d- ficult or irrelevant. The work in the previous monograph was strictly devoted to problems of theory of knowledge and critique of classical, bounded and other rationalities in decision-choice processes regarding the principles of verification, falsification or corroboration in knowledge production. This monograph deals mostly with epistemic decision-choice models and theories and how they are related to both the classical and fuzzy paradigms.
