Relativism is the concept that points of view have no absolute truth or validity, having only relative, subjective value according to differences in perception and consideration.


Relativism thrives when people do not have to shoulder the burden of actually coming to a conclusion

~ Simon Blackburn

  1. I’m not sure that relativism usually thrives. I think more people are willing to fight and kill for their viewpoints, and relativists are probably towards the top of their lists.

    Oh, Ramana. All my life I have asserted “It’s all relative”. And it is.

    Until it isn’t.

    Not sure if it is relative but I have tonnes of relatives. Boom! Boom!

    • And that too is relative. Who you may call a relative may not wish to be called so or may not acknowledge you as a relative! We humans are basically comedians.

    Yes, relativism is absolutely the best way to go.

    Hi Rummy,

    Thank you for the mention, my friend :D. And you are welcome.
    These cartoons illustrate in a brilliant fashion the spirit of relativism – excellent choices.
    Even I, once upon a time, experimented with relativism until the day I realised that it is a highly flawed concept and called it quits. One of the many inconvenient truths in life is that we need moral standards.

    Have a fun over the weekend, Rummy :D.
    And thanks, once again.
