Overview Vagueness, Logic and Ontology explores various responses to the philosophical problems generated by vagueness and its associated paradox - the sorites paradox. Hyde argues that the theoretical space in which vagueness is sometimes ontologically grounded and modelled by a truth-functional logic affords a coherent response to the problems posed by vagueness.
Showing how the concept of vagueness can be applied to the world, Hyde's ontological account proposes a substantial revision of orthodox semantics, metaphysics and logic.

Industry Reviews 'Hyde's compelling, well documented and argued book is a definite gain in making "the streets of speculation just a little bit safer for the philosophers of tomorrow" Sorensen, even though he does that not by banishing it, but by placing speculation into quite a different and complementing logical-ontological limelights.
