Elusive Certainty & Determining Truth

Can we be certain about anything or is truth subjective? Ontology, epistemology, and the modes and tools of discerning truth(logos, ethos, pathos, epistemological assumptions, superstition, inductive and deductive reasoning). 

How ought limited, finite, myopic human beings use their incomplete knowledge to approach a thing like truth?

Overview

  • Ontology and epistemology — are we capable of knowing truth? Can we be certain about anything? 
  • How we pursue truth — including modes of reasoning/persuasion, epistemological assumptions, and superstition.
