Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


This chapter examines some areas of theoretical and experimental psychology in which the Sorites Paradox has had an influence or has been an object of study. Our goal is to show not only different manifestations of the Sorites in psychology, but also how psychological modelling and behavioural data can cast light on the puzzle raised by the paradox.
