What’s the difference between rationalism, empiricism and nativism?

In: Other

Rationalism is focused as “reason” as the source of knowledge, empiricism focuses on experience and sensory inputs as the source of knowledge and nativism is a derivation from the latin word for being born and apparently is some anti-immigration policy? Not sure what that has to do with the other unless you’ve heard about all of that in the right wing context in which case “rationalism” means “I am smart and if you don’t agree, then you’re not smart”, “empiricism” means “I’ve seen it ones so it must be that all the time, also don’t ask to many questions where I seen it” and “nativism” means “despite my family likely having immigrated into whatever country I’m currently in, I’ll pretend as if I have much more of a claim to live here than other people”.

Hope this summarizes it.
