6. Objectivism and Behaviourism
6.1. The Objectivist Epistemology
Objectivists believe that there exists an objective and reliable set of facts, principles, and theories that either has been discovered and delineated or will be over the course of time. This position is linked to the belief that truth exists outside the human mind, or independently of what an individual may or may not believe. Thus, the laws of physics are constant, although our knowledge of them may evolve as we discover the ‘truth’ out there.
