L.A.ZADEH’S “FUZZY LOGIC” AS A KEY TO THE DESCRIPTION OF HUMANISTIC SYSTEMS
Мisir J. Mardanov, Ramin R. Rzayev

The decision-making process is recognized as a type of human intellectual activity, which is presented as a continuous chain of multi-criteria choices developed and implemented under the influence of numerous factors of the diverse nature. In the paper, considering the presence of uncertainties, and the human factor, each university is considered as a humanistic educational system, and the assessment of its competitiveness level and the calculation of the corresponding rating are presented as a weakly structured problem that has not only quantitative but also qualitative characteristics (pp.26-37). 

Keywords:humanistic system, linguistic variable, fuzzy set, fuzzy logic.
