THERE IS NO TRUTH OUT THERE
In the first section it was argued that Natural Theology fails to establish reference to God and so, likewise, does Reformed Epistemology. The only rational alternative seems to be anti-realism which has considerable explanatory power and which avoids the need for a claim to reference while still maintaining truth claims, albeit within different forms of life. The idea of truth being relative to different forms of life seems to be supported by constructivism in psychology. In both cases, therefore, truth is relative to the human community. In this section, this analysis will be extended and it will be argued that a divide in the road after Immanuel Kant has led to a widespread present view of the meaninglessness of life and the search for truth being seen as folly. Post-modernism, in different forms, has value and has revealed important insights but, in some versions, it has undermined confidence in crucial areas of human life. This represents a primary challenge both to education and to the way human beings see themselves.
