The relatively new field of "Tropical Geometry" and "Classical Algebraic Geometry" have much in common. In this paper, we present a unified approach to both of these fields by studying more general "Fuzzy Geometries" over fuzzy rings. It turns out that the fuzzy ring which underlies "Tropical Geometry" is the same as that belonging to "Valuated Matroids".
