I’m stuck on a Philosophy question and need an explanation.
Now that you have explored the major theories of truth and knowledge, in this Discussion Board, students will reflect on the more modern theories, Relativism and Pragmatism, indicating which theory they find more convincing, as well as calling attention to some of the problems they can lead to.
1. State whether you find Relativism or Pragmatism more convincing, and provide reasoning in support of your position.
2. Describe some of the ways in which the theory you chose can prove problematic regarding knowledge in the modern world – particularly considering some more recent societal buzzwords, such as “fake news,” “alternative facts,” “post-truth,” etc.
