Abstract

I inspect in a brief theoretical - philosophical essay the roots of subjectivity and suggest many possible directions for examining the phenomenon of subjectivity so that multiple different meanings can be revealed. For instance, a researcher can explore her or his own subjectivity or he/she can attempt to define subjectivity per se or the researcher can uncover subjectivity or merely learn about subjectivity. I propose that subjectivity is an inner essence of flux and ask if it is even possible to fully capture a researcher’s subjectivity. Another proposition is to view subjectivity as an inner essence of each and every individual. Finally, I conclude that to demarcate subjectivity as opposite to objectivity is the least fruitful way to uncover the ultimate core of subjectivity – the multiple connections toward a vital balance of any type of research endeavor.
