|Spanish term or phrase: teoría borrosa|
|Introducción a la **teoría borrosa**.|
What's this, please??
|fuzzy set theory|
This theory was started by Lofti Zadeh. Here is a Spanish site that discusses this:
Según Zadeh , no debería considerarse la teoría borrosa como una simple teoría, sino que se debería considerar el proceso de borrosificación (en inglés fuzzification) como una metodología para generalizar cualquier teoría desde su versión ordinaria (discreta) a una nueva versión continua (borrosa) (véase el principio de extensión, apartado A.1.3.7 ). Así puede hablarse de "cálculo borroso", "ecuaciones diferenciales borrosas", "autómatas borrosos" ( [Klir y Yuan, 95] ), "sistemas dinámicos borrosos", etc.
In English, you see references to the exact same term under Lofti Zadeh. There are a variety of terms in this field (some of them already mentioned, such as fuzzy logic), but to be exact, I think it needs to be called "fuzzy set theory".
Here are some examples in English (over 11,000 references in Google):

Vague macrosociological theory generates uncertainty about statistical models. As a result, statistical inferences in macrosociology—where data sets are small and collinear—may carry considerably more error than is indicated by the conventional estimation and testing methods. I describe a Bayesian approach that propagates uncertainty about statistical models through to the final results. This approach is illustrated in a model of cross-national welfare state development and a pooled cross-sectional analysis of strike activity. These examples show that classical inferences can be seriously misleading when vague theory weakly guides the model specification. These ideas are considered in relation to recent methodological debates in macrosociology.

A vague theory of choice over time
We propose a novel approach to modelling time preferences, based on a cognitive shortcoming of human decision makers: the perception of future events becomes increasingly `blurred\' as the events are pushed further in time. We rationalise phenomena such as preference reversals and cyclical preferences. We present two applications, one explaining equal division in barganing and the other \'the slippery slope\' phenomenon: i.e. why naive agents avoid an activity altogether wrongly fearing that engaging in it once will generate the temptation to indulge in it to an undesirable extent.
