Social Fictions

Objectivity has its place in the world. Its utility for civil policies, science and economics is clear as we must be able to make collective decisions in order to produce certain outcomes.
When thinking of, or talking about perceptions and meaning-making, objectivity becomes problematic. Perception is idiosyncratic and meaning is a social activity of co-definition, neither are fixed, and both are subject to continued interpretation and contest. Both perception and meaning making are subjective.
