The study aimed at comparison of two standpoints in the contemporary analitical philosophy: antirealism and contextualism. Three characteristics of the antirealist views will be taken into consideration: 1) epistemic character of truth, 2) relative character of truth, 3) subjective approach to knowledge. It seems that at least two of the features are to be found in contextualist views. Nevertheless, it will be argued that some similarities between antirealism and contextualism can be traced but only on a shallow level.
