Neo-Meilandian Truth-Relativism of a Weak Sort

Peter Davson-Galle


[0] Some years ago, Jack Meiland suggested that a viable relativistic concept of truth could be developed within the broad constraints of a correspondence theory by construing the relative truth of a statement as a three place relation among the statement, the world and a third relatum (individual, framework of belief, culture etc.). I attempt to develop this suggestion using a conceptual web as the third relatum and offer a thesis of relative truth employing it that avoids self-refutation without making truth overly subjective.
