right and wrong

instead of having "right" answers you could have "agreed upon answers that work in applied situations" and those would be anything medical. but if you have to learn something in science or math as "right" even like 2+2=4 (dostoevsky doesn't think that's right, but that's another story) then does it become right? we should definitely talk more about distinguishing between levels of "rightness" because it cannot be said that every element of science is as subjective as every element of a humanity discipline.
