Relativism and Science

Stephen Downes, Half an Hour, Apr 15, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The question I address in this blog post is, "How can you be a relativist?" Because, as the video says, there is knowledge. You don't walk out the second floor window, and we can extend our lifespans with medicine, and all that. It's not all a big mystery, and it's not all "anything goes." Quite right. There is knowledge, and it's not all "anything goes." But it does not follow that relativism is false.
