Topic: There are no facts only interpretations
Posted: Monday, March 19, 2018 11:56:45 PM
This means that the truth is a matter of point of view or perspective - even the presumable objective (or universal) truth of the hard sciences. What we call "objective truth" belongs to one culture, is built upon values such as "impartiality" or upon the notion that the truth is something good for the humans, etc. These conception is close to the anthropological conception of what constitutes the notion of truth in one culture. For an American Native, for instance, truth is a matter of relation with spirits and other entities, not relation between a universally rational consciousness and an object that is "there" like a rough fact.
