|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/Monod: objectivity of nature: means the cancellation of the submission of a final cause, a "project"._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
