subjectivity

subjectivity
The self-conscious perspective of the person or subject . This is invariably contrasted with objectivity and is used pejoratively by positivistic social scientists. By contrast, it is seen as crucial within hermeneutics. Structuralist, Marxist, and psychoanalytic theories have suggested how the subject is constructed. See also interpretation ; meaning.
