Alan Ross Anderson was one of the first logicians who were interested in the logic of prudence and related concepts, such as caution. He called this area “eubouliatic logic,” a term which has not become popular. Anderson made a distinction between four prudence-related concepts which can be placed in a square of opposition. Prudence and related concepts are nowadays often seen as fuzzy concepts. We investigate which consequences this has for the logic of these concepts.
