- Main Wikipedia article: Consensus reality
Consensus reality is a set of philosophical theories which argue that reality, or at least our understanding of it, is determined or influenced by consensus. These theories are related to sociological theories of conformity and public opinion, but tend to be more concerned with epistomological and metaphysical questions. Many theories of consensus reality are postmodernist in character, but the terms are not directly interchangeable.
