  1. I advise you to use Wiktionary if you don't know the meaning of any word. And then wikipedia, if you want to study the concept in more detail.

    Relative – changing depending on the surrounding conditions; not unconditional, not absolute. For example, sand in the dry state is sand grains of quartz. This knowledge is absolute. Sand will not change its shape if we approach its description from a different angle. Here is a good deed-a relative concept, because this good deed may somehow displease people of a different worldview, so depending on the surrounding conditions, in this case, depending on the views of the evaluator, the approach may not only be good or bad, but also have a neutral assessment. For example, teenagers committed an act of vandalism, destroying a monument to Lenin. Most people will find the behavior of teenagers bad, and their act is not good. But personally, I don't care about the monument to Lenin, and the attitude of teenagers to this historical figure, so for me the act of teenagers will not have any meaning, respectively, I will not attach any color to it. However, I can scold teenagers and say to them with sarcasm like: “Oh, how bad! How dare you defile such an outstanding person!” But my true opinion of teenagers will remain the same and will still differ from other people's opinions. Therefore, true/true in this case will always be relative.

    Relativity – a property based on the meaning of the adjective “relative”. In general, almost any word ending in ” awn ” means a property/characteristic feature / attribute of an object. Example: “The relativity of this concept is too controversial. It seems to me that this concept is most likely absolute.” In this example, the author argues that this concept has the property of relativity. It is appropriate to add that the property of any object / object / phenomenon, in turn, can be characterized by a degree. For example: ahuennost my hairstyle (hairstyle has the property of ahuennost) > the degree of ahuennost my hairstyle just rolls over > > the highest degree of ahuennost my hairstyle.

  2. This means that what is defined as relative is defined in its content (definition, meaning, meaning, truth, etc.) just relative to some coordinate system (physical, spatial, cultural, etc.) or description system (logical, linguistic, etc.).

    So, your question in its original wording (“The concept of relative , what does it mean?”) has an unambiguous meaning and can expect a correct and unambiguous answer only in relation to your understanding of the language and its rules. However, my understanding of the normative language rules requires that you correct the inaccuracy and ambiguity of your wording.

    Namely, if you follow the minimum rules of grammar and semantic certainty, your question could sound at least in three ways::

    1. The concept of relative, what does it mean? (when asking about the relative, about the relativity of the world and its phenomena, we use the genitive case)

    2. The concept of “relative”, what does it mean? (when asking about a scientific concept or philosophical category, use quotation marks with the nominative case)

    3. The concept of “love” is relative: what does it mean? (when asking about the relativity of a particular phenomenon named in the concept [in this example, love], we use quotation marks and punctuation marks to accurately formulate the subject of our interest)

    The answer of Edmund Groysman and the dispute in the comments to it is precisely born of the ambiguity and uncertainty of your question. Don't take my answer as an empty edification (because I answered your question about the concept of relative:)), but in order to get the desired answer to what you are really interested in, you should not only ask the question for yourself, but also be able to ask it to others. Good luck! 🙂

  3. This means that everything in our world is relative. For example, not everything in this world is definitely something bad or good, black or white. That is, from the point of view of one person, murder is an extremely immoral and terrible act, and from the point of view of another person (the killer), it is at least normal and natural.

    By the way, this is also why it is believed that each person has his own vision of things and a view of the world as a whole.
