Logical “Truth Values” Table: 1. objective truth – a statement is objectively true if its  truth value does not depend on  sensory perception. 2. relative truth – a statement is relatively true if its truth  value depends on sensory perception. *notice, these are  opposites: no objective truth is relatively true (and vice  versa) 3. contingent truth – a statement is contingently true if  its truth value depends on time and space.  *notice,  all relative statements are also contingent (but not vice  versa; some contingent statements are also objective). 4. necessary truth – a statement is necessarily true if its
