Realism, philosophy: realism is a collective term for theories which, in principle, believe that it is possible for us to acquire knowledge about objects of the external world that is independent from us as perceptual subjects. A strong realism typically represents the thesis that it would make sense to even create hypotheses about basically unknowable objects. See also metaphysical realism, internal realism, universal realism, constructivism.

Realism/Wright: needs bivalence, that is, it is suitable only for certain discourses - it forces the distinction between T-pred for discourse and for superassertibility - T-Cert (realistic): regardless of evidence - the text should then have a feature that the superassertibility has not - then s.a. is inadequate.
