*Abstract.*Fuzzy Galois connections were introduced by Bělohlávek in [4]. The structure considered there for the set of truth values is a complete residuated lattice, which places the discussion in a “commutative fuzzy world”. What we are doing in this paper is dropping down the commutativity, getting the corresponding notion of Galois connection and generalizing some results obtained by Bělohlávek in [4] and [7]. The lack of the commutative law in the structure of truth values makes it appropriate for dealing with a sentences conjunction where the order between the terms of the conjunction counts, gaining thus a temporal dimension for the statements. In this “non-commutative world”, we have not one, but two implications ([15]). As a consequence, a Galois connection will not be a pair, but a quadruple of functions, which is in fact two pairs of functions, each function being in a symmetric situation to his pair. Stating that these two pairs are compatible in some sense, we get the notion of strong L-Galois connection, a more operative and prolific notion, repairing the “damage” done by non-commutativity.
