the chicken soup dilemma


a chef & lover of philosophy invites a group of 4 philosophers over to try his chicken soup:

A is an absolutist
S is a subjectivst
R is a relativist
K is a skeptic

being quizzed about, they all counter affirmatively:

a great soup this is!

how could these four contrasting individuals agree?

because a statement by itself cannot constitute a criteria for a philosophical position.
