reality produced by either men or environment that can be altered or influenced by men. a situation produced by men that other men have the ability to change, usually because they are the foundation or the customers of the situation. also, environmental conditions such as drought or earthquake whose consequences (on people) can be influenced by men. pliant reality implies situations that have gained acceptance or value through habit and tradition.
This tendency to accept pliant reality as immutable, or the best alternative to chaos, is for me one's rejection of himself, his intelligence, and his potential.
