In this paper, attempt to argue against a strict 'scientistic' conception of reality, namely, the absolute conception of reality posited by Bernard Williams. Such a view problematically equivocates what is objective with what is absolute, generating a sharp Science/Ethics dichotomy; where scientific claims are objective and ethical claims are either subjective or relative. I contend that the absolute conception of reality is indefensible and consequently that, the 'absolute' ought not to be conceived of as the 'objective.'
