  1. Objectivity, in principle, presupposes the reality of the existence of something. Subjectivity expresses the attitude of a person (s) to something that objectively exists. However, the number of people expressing this attitude does not matter. However, if a researcher, for example, has learned a certain phenomenon deeply and comprehensively, and then, excluding the slightest bias, has formed his ideas into a system of knowledge, then we can talk about the objectivity of his approach and, accordingly, his view.

  2. This is a matter of terminology. If you take “objectivity” in the strongest possible definition, then it does not exist or it is fundamentally unknowable, closed, etc. You can weaken the criteria and then you will get something like what Vladimir writes about.�

    I like the concept of “intersubjectivity” – I prefer that term to “objectivity”. If we somehow (almost) all managed to agree on something, then it has the status of intersubjective truth. Talking about “objectivity” doesn't seem like a very productive approach to me.
