|Objectivity: is a property of determinations about facts. It is assumed that the properties attributed to the facts are determined by the facts and are not, or as little as, influenced by the attributing person. In order to determine whether this requirement is fulfilled, consideration must be given to the methods of access to information. This goes beyond the facts considered._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Objectivity/Habermas: an assessment can be objective if it is made on the basis of a trans-subjective claim to validity which has the same meaning for any observer and addressee as for the subject itself.
Validity: Claims of this kind are truth and efficiency.
Objectivity/Realism: for the "realistic" approach, the world as the epitome of what is the case, is objective.
Objectivity/Phenomenology: for the "phenomenological" approach, it is first necessary to determine the conditions under which the unity of an objective world is constituted for the members of a communication community.
