Usually, fuzzy logic (and multi-valued logics in general) are viewed as drastically different from the usual 2-valued logic. In this paper, we show that while on the surface, there indeed seems to be a major difference, a more detailed analysis shows that even in the theories based on the 2-valued logic, there naturally appear constructions which are, in effect, multi-valued, constructions which are very close to fuzzy logic.
