Objectivity is the basing of knowledge on empirical, observable data without applying personal preconceptions or experience. No human being is completely objective, although many come closer than others. Science is often assumed to be objective, yet this claim has been challenged by a range of groups, such as philosophers[1] psychologists[2], historians, and sociologists of science.[3]
