This chapter outlines rationale for cognitive machines. It connects theories of bounded rationality of Herbert Simon with theories of fuzzy systems of Lotfi Zadeh in order to justify advantages of the participation of cognitive machines in organizations. The connections are derived by explaining why cognitive machines can extend limits of knowledge (lack of information) and limits of information processing and management (lack of cognition and computational capacity) of humans when participating in organizations.
