Mindyou, I know very little about it either, and just browsed the linked-to FAQ (which, by the way, I found using Google) for a few minutes, but I think this is true:

While logical fallacies are, by definition, false (because they use false pretences to reach a conclusion), fuzzy logic can be described as a system for "partial truths". Instead of just black and white, you have various shades of gray in-between.

Fuzzy logic concerns itself with questions like: When do I stop saying "it's cold outside" and start saying "it's warm outside"? To which degree is it warm or cold? Where's the limit between cold and freezing or warm and hot? (Of course taken to a mathematical level, putting in all kinds of boring numbers and equations and stuff.)
