The article, tries to explore mysticism from a fuzzy thinking angle of
view and analyze it in terms of epistemic and social pathology. To do
this end, it undertakes first to define the notion and historical
background of the term "fuzzy" and then proceeds to describe the
fuzzy worldview. It then goes on to expound, what is meant by "fuzzy
logic" explaining and proving its theoretical principles and
fundamental theorems. While introducing the "fuzzy notion" and
analyzing its relation to categories such as "knowledge" and "hikma",
the author goes on to discuss the relation between mysticism on the
one hand and fuzzy logic and thinking on the other. Accordingly.
mysticism enjoys naturally such characteristics that are in harmony
with corresponding ones in fuzzy thinking. For this reason, mysticism
should be considered as a quasi- fuzzy thinking.
