In so doing, they carry on a long and esteemed tradition – for our two questions are among the. Thus, a realist is one who would have us understand the meanings of sentences in terms of their truth-conditions (the situations that must obtain if they are to be true); an antirealist holds that those meanings are to be understood by reference to assertability-conditions (the circumstances under which we would be justified in asserting them.

Realism and Antirealism - What is the Answer. The realism and antirealism debate is very complex and, as with most philosophy, there is a vast grey area. For example, I have never been to Australia, but I am sure that it exists.
