    No. Realism is distinct from Idealism on this issue.

    Ah. It would be nice if philosophers could agree on the definitions of their terms.

    Yes it would be, but unfortunately we've hit a massive impasse in regards to the very nature of philosophy.

    Not meaning to derail the thread, but we can't even agree on what exactly constitutes rational thought.

    Could we agree that the nature of reality in its most basic form is the unraveling of a process? This wouldn't imply anything about the process, just that it unravels/unfolds continuously.

    So if you think this premise is wrong, then please explain to me why. My apologies for saying this, but some people will simply state right or wrong without any reason to accompany, which is trivial to an observer who is ultimately only relative in thought to you.

    Are you talking about justificationist philosophy vs eastern philosophies or pancritical rationalism?

    Heraclitus vs Parmenides?

    I'm talking about the division outlined by MacIntyre in Whose Rationality? Whose Justice? between the Classical-Christian tradition, the Encyclopedists who claim to follow the Enlightenment but don't actually believe it, and the Nietzscheans.
