Relativistic Statements About Absolute Truth

When someone attempts to temper their epistemological relativism by saying that it is true that absolutes exist but as humans we are unable to know them, it is important to remember that their statement that “absolutes exist” is, according to their own philosophy, something that is not absolutely true. So logically what they are really saying is that any statement that says absolutes exist is necessarily untrue.
