In modal logic, tools for understanding epistemology have been traditionally known as conceptual models for reality – or – conceptual reality models. This is a form of sub-structural, or, modal, logic.
Here are three pieces to one puzzle –
Absolutism states that truth is absolute and can be fully known.
Relativism states that the truth is relative.
Realism holds that the truth cannot be known.
Traditionally, these have always been seen as contradicting ideas – aside from dualism, which combines absolutism and relativism. If you ask me – this is simply a classic example of man making a stone so heavy that he cannot lift it. These models have always been pieces to the same puzzle.
The challenge is :
Can you figure out how they all fit together?
