Abstract : The trism theory is a general theory of knowledge. It is proposed as a single framework for the analysis of theology, philosophy, and science. The theory consists of five axioms and five corresponding definitions. This report contains a detailed analysis of the structure of each axiom and definition. Various symbolic representations, matrix patterns, and network forms are also described for different applications of the theory. Two major examples are used to explain aspects of the theory. The philosophy of existentialism is one of these examples. A second example concerns an analysis of the structure of the English language. These two examples, however, are only used as tools in order to achieve the main objective of this report -- that of explaining all the elements and components of the trism theory. (Author)
