For the philosophically inclined

You don’t have to be a philosopher to get the gist of this short blog post but you do have to work hard for a few minutes. It’s about the relationship between reality (what is—aka ontology) and how we know (aka epistemology). It compares postmodern views with others and opts for a critical realist position, which says (roughly!) that our knowledge is imperfect but that doesn’t change the way the world is. “Now we see in a mirror dimly” said St Paul. (1 Cor 13:22)
