Can there be such a thing as "objective" truth? If so, what is its origin? How is it derived or accessed by the human mind?

Or, are there only opinions about truth?

Relativism is difficult to explain, apply or defend once it is examined closely. At the end of the day, relativism, once carefully scrutinized, seems to disintegrate into some form of nihilism?

Today at 4 pm we will try to have a conversation about relativism and objective truth. Which should be interesting, because it's difficult to support relativism without falling back on, and relying on, basic truth-claims.

Today, at 4 pm. In the Rands House (5229 Cass Avenue on Main Campus) conference room 103 on the first floor. For more information see the Events tab at Light refreshments will be provided.
