Perspectivism is the view that any claim to knowledge is bound to the perspective formed by the contingent "interests" of the knower. Are you a perspectivist?

No, I'm a Realist. I deal with What Is, not with What I'd Like It To Be. It's easy when you're as compartmentalized as me.

It was coined by Nietzsche, but he didn't actually study philosophy.

No, knowledge can also be tied to objective reality which can be deduced through the scientific method. This, in turn, allows us to increment closer and closer to the truth,

Any claim to knowledge is a journey, not a destination.
