    The Objectivity of History The issues that are raised in this source by Marc Trachtenberg are is whether or not objectivity is still a relevant idea, and if it is not then is history in fact dying. Keith Jenkins' "What is History?," Carl Becker's "What are Historical Facts?" and Richard Evans' "In Defence of History" will be used to discuss and examine these issues. Marc Trachtenberg is questioning if objectivity is possible and desirable in today's society, and this is a question that many

    The Price of Objectivity The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway is one of the pre-eminent works of modernist literature. It set the tone for the several decades of literature that was to follow. It delves deeply into the 'lost generation' that was created after the first wold war. A generation that lost any idealism that their predecessors had. A generation that lost any emotional attachment to the world around them. This is a trait that is predominant throughout Hemingway's novel as the narrator

    Loss of Objectivity Loss of objectivity is a personality trait of someone who has grown out of childhood yet has not matured emotionally in order to recognize other people’s wants and desires. A person without objectivity functions much like a child. They are able to let their imaginations run wild and function without regard to the consequences of actions. Madame Bovary and Miss. Jean Brodie are two characters who are unable to mature emotionally and therefore are without objectivity. It is much

    Objectivity in History First exposure to history, whether it be at home or at school, will almost certainly be at an age when the child can do no other than expect to be told the truth. So, from the very beginning, whether we find history dull or exciting, easy or hard, we do at least assume that we are being given an accurate account of the past. Our subsequent growing up can be seen as a process of progressively shedding the literal beliefs of early life, from Father Christmas and Easter

    The Ideal of Objectivity in Political Dialogue ABSTRACT: If political dialogue is to identify and redress existing forms of injustice, participants in the dialogue must be able to appeal to the concept of objectivity in order to exchange claims, attitudes, and background beliefs which distort or conceal various forms of injustice. The conceptions of objectivity traditionally employed in liberal democratic political philosophy are not well-suited to play this role because they are insufficiently

    Determinism, Objectivity, and Pessimism in The Open Boat In Stephen Crane's short story "The Open Boat", the American literary school of naturalism is used and three of the eight features are most apparent, making this work, in my opinion, a good example of the school of naturalism. These three of the eight features are determinism, objectivity, and pessimism. They show, some more than others, how Stephen Crane viewed the world and the environment around him. Determinism

    issues concerned with objectivity in the modern world: how it is different from truth? Is it practically possible to acquire an objective view? What are the implications of seeking objectivity? Objectivity is not equivalent to truth. Firstly, truth is absolute whereas objectivity is relative to object being objectified. In other words, truth is beyond the realm of corporeality but objectivity has to have some association with a material entity. Facts generated by objectivity may also define its converse

    I have always been fascinated by the prolific dichotomy of objectivity and subjectivity in its many forms. It has crept up in my studies, in my life and learning and reflecting about the world in general. Is the world really real? What is it that we can factually, objectively state about the reality of our being, the surrounding physical world or the thinker that is pondering these questions? When it comes down to it, no-one has really answered this question. Most philosophers agree, that the closest

    Evolutionary Ethics ABSTRACT: Michael Ruse has argued that evolutionary ethics discredits the objectivity and foundations of ethics. Ruse must employ dubitable assumptions, however, to reach his conclusion. We can trace these assumptions to G. E. Moore. Also, part of Ruse’s case against the foundations of ethics can support the objectivity and foundations of ethics. Cooperative activity geared toward human flourishing helps point the way to a naturalistic moral realism and not exclusively to
