I do not reject your definition of things; I accept that from your worldview, using the sets of assumptions you have built up and the tools that you are using, it works for you. I think that’s marvelous. But I reject the universality of it.
I tend to approach things from a sociocultural/historical perspective. I don’t know if that helps you understand any better but what you may see as absolutes, I do not. I see them as perspectives that have a historical and cultural basis and are contingent upon acceptance of a set of a priori constraints.
