In philosophy, universality or absolutism is the idea that universal facts exist and can be progressively discovered, as opposed to relativism, which asserts that all facts are merely relative to one's perspective. Absolutism and relativism have been explored at length in contemporary analytic philosophy. Note: Kantian and Platonist determinations of "universal", are occasionally considered by some philosophers to be separate ideas.
