What is Absolute Truth?July 2, 2021
Complete and immutable knowledge of objective reality… Truth is the knowledge we acquire on objective reality. The dialectical materialist doctrine has determined and clearly revealed that the truth, that is, the knowledge we have acquired on objective reality, has both relative and absolute sides.
Truth is relative; because it does not fully reflect the objective reality, but also changes and becomes competent with scientific development. Truth is absolute because it has an unchanging content that leads to completeness and perfection. Absolute truth is the sum of relative truths. Science would not have developed if approximate (relative) information did not have a fixed (absolute) content. In other words, the changing side of knowledge is the relative side, the developing side is the absolute side. “Do human thoughts that declare objective truth express it once and completely, unconditionally and absolutely, or do they express it approximately and relatively? The answer to this question is clear: approximately and relatively. “But this is also true without any conditions. an absolute reality corresponds to every scientific ideology”. For example, there is a physical phenomenon in the universe that we call light (or N., which we call evolution). This is certain, unchanging, and therefore absolute knowledge. N.) scientific knowledge (optics) of his theory is constantly changing and developing, therefore it is relative.
Just as the process of knowing is infinite, the ability of people to know is also infinite. “Human thought is capable of and gives us the absolute truth, which is the sum of relative truths, by its very nature. Each development stage of the sciences adds new grains to this absolute truth sum”. The theory of categories of relative and absolute truth reflecting the historical development of objective truth; It has removed all the absurdity of metaphysics, which asserts that every truth is absolute, final, and unchangeable, and idealist relativism, which asserts that all knowledge is relative and science should be viewed with suspicion.
