But (c) is not just false but absurd or unintelligible, which means that we cannot attach any truth value to it at all. Now, the antecedent of (b) is not absurd though it might be false. Hence we cannot dismiss the consequent of (b) by dismissing its antecedent. The only way to get rid of (c) which is implied by (b) is by claiming that the whole proposition (b) is absurd or unintelligible. But since (b) is equivalent to (a) which is the relativist's fundamental claim we have by this procedure shown that his claim is absurd.
