Abstract
In this paper we advance three clear-cut proposals as a contribution to the discussion on the role of Theory of Computation and Fuzziness as a bridge between Hard and Soft Sciences. We suggest that an important difference between the two great families of science lies in their subject or research having a grounding in nature or not, and that Theory of Computation is a glaring exception to this classification, being a textbook hard science but dealing with the immaterial. We further advance that such unicity is strongly connected with Church-Turing thesis, and discuss about the role of Theory of Computation and Fuzziness as pillars of immaterial sciences
