The Reality

  • March 19, 2003, 7:58am

Reality doesn't necessarily imply one thing. We do use the article with reality in such a sentence as "He doesn't understand the reality of the situation." Here I'm not talking about an absolute universal thing. It's a particular thing, 'of the situation.'

Think of the sentence "The reality in China is very different from the reality in America." What reality is for a Chinese person is very different from what it is for an American. Which one is absolute, and who's authorized to say so?

Finally, 'reality' is an uncountable noun. 'The sun' is not.
