Realistic Truth Relativism, Frameworks of Belief and Conceptual Schemes

Peter Davson-Galle

[0] In a previous paper, attempting to explicate a viable truth relativism within a realist/correspondence theory of truth and using something like a framework of belief or a conceptual scheme as the relativiser, I remarked that "I (was) persuaded that having a body of substantive assertions (a theory, say) as the relativiser has intractable difficulties..." (Davson-Galle 1994: [5]). In what follows I attempt to substantiate that judgement.
