Formatted abstract
Akiba (1999) has sought to show that “[t]he logic of super- and subvaluationism can be regarded not as an alternative to classical logic but an extension of it. We do not need non-classical logic to understand vagueness”. Whilst I agree that there is a sense in which these logics can be so regarded, the issue of whether or not we should regard them as mere classical extensions remains open. The case for preferring classical logic over its non-classical rivals in attempts to understand vagueness remains to be made.
