...Ayn Rand. Objectivism is unique in its way that it’s the antidote of the society we live in. In essence, existence and one’s self-consciousness become the vital points that influence our perception. Without existence and consciousness, no foundation of knowledge can be built.

Thus, it is safe to say existence and every action is executed should be based of knowledge. Hence, it is clear that relativism acknowledge that what seems to be real and what seems to be true will differ from culture to culture. Thus, the theory states...
