"If we do not argue that rationalism falls into coherent and incoherent categories, we are forced to adopt a non-relativist position, because we cannot argue for absolute (coherent) relativism, or subjective (incoherent) relativism. But, both coherence and incoherence render relativism in a trivial form. In coherence, relativism must be universal, contradicting multiplicity, and therefore existing in the form of measurement. Incoherence also measures relativism, although through irrationality. Thus, both uacceptable forms of relativism  consider it to be merely a form of measurement. Now the extension of relativism requires the extension of relativism's triviality, and this leads to no assumption of relativism in any major systematic category. The conclusion is that relativism is trivial."
