Epistemological realism is a philosophical position, a subcategory of objectivism, holding that what you know about an object exists independently of your mind. It opposes epistemological idealism.

Epistemological realism is related directly to the Coherence theory of truth, which claims that the world exists independently and innately to our perceptions of it. Our sensory data then reflects or corresponds to the innate world.
