Objectivity and Inter-Cultural Experience

  • William McKenna
Part of the Contributions to Phenomenology book series (CTPH, volume 51)


This paper is part of an ongoing project to develop a theory of “situated objectivity” and to apply it to various human interactions. My interest is to develop a concept of objectivity that has certain aspects of human experience contribute to objectivity that are considered irrelevant or even obstacles to it in what I consider to be the leading concept of objectivity in modern Western philosophy. This concept is the concept of scientific objectivity that Thomas Nagel has called “the view from nowhere.”
