I hear the word “objective” used fairly often. I’ve heard it at home, at the university, at work, and even at church on occasion. One thing I think we fail to appreciate is that this word can have several different meanings and that some of these meanings may convey more philosophical baggage than we might know.
Although there may be more ways to use the word, I’ve decided to deal specifically with two ways I hear the word “objective” used daily.
