In philosophy, knowledge relativity is the notion that knowledge can be seen as the relation between a form of representation with up to two sorts of intent – communication and use goals – and with up to three subjects – one who knows, one who is informed, and one who observes and confirms.
This relational and subject-oriented view of knowledge is an alternative to the objectivist truth-based view common in logic.
When we attempt to conceive of perfection in all phases and forms of relativity, we encounter seven conceivable types:
- Absolute perfection in all aspects.
- Absolute perfection in some phases and relative perfection in all other aspects.
- Absolute, relative, and imperfect aspects in varied association.
- Absolute perfection in some respects, imperfection in all others.
- Absolute perfection in no direction, relative perfection in all manifestations.
- Absolute perfection in no phase, relative in some, imperfect in others.
- Absolute perfection in no attribute, imperfection in all.
