In the previous week’s Barefoot Chat webinar, which was on “seeing”, the notion of objectivity came up several times. Given this concept is central not only for understanding perception but also for research in science and social science today, we will discuss objectivity in this week’s session. We will meet at 3 pm, this Saturday, 17 October to continue our live chat here
The reading addresses some of these questions:
- Did objectivity have the same meaning since it was developed as an idea?
- Are there types of objectivity?
- How did the notion of scientific objectivity come about?
Reading is available online here
