Abstract: After reviewing the principal and well-known defects of fuzzy logic this paper proposes to use numerical values in conjunction with a supervaluational approach to vagueness. The two principal ideas are degrees of candidature and expected truth value. I present an outline of the theory, which combines vagueness of predicates and vagueness of objects, and discuss its pros and cons.
