Where do you get the idea that either outweighs the other?
I get it from you Susan!
If you are sending a Voyager into space, you will most certainly consider that objective facts far, far outweigh someone's personal and subjective opinions about that. If on the other hand you are choosing a painting or anything at all in the aesthetic part of your life, then objectivity is not really relevant, except in perhaps the consideration of whether it can be re-sold for a profit or something.
I was out with my wife the other night and we looked at Jupiter and Saturn. Visually , they are dots in the sky although Jupiter is a bright dot! Through a telescope, you can see the 4 major Jupiter satellites and its brighter bands of clouds. When the Voyager spacecraft passed Jupiter and Saturn we received awesome and beautiful photographs. Each of these steps in technology added to our simpler perceptions. In each one, visually, through a telescope, via the Voyager spacecraft, Jupiter remained an object. The observer remained a subject at all levels of inquiry.
When we look at a painting, we are looking at an object similarly to the case of Saturn and Jupiter. The painting remains an object, if we stand close or far away, whether we like it or not. Our valuation of the painting is the valuation of an object by a subject - us!
Great point! We are subjects producing models of objects in space/time around us.Quote
all science are a 100% product of human subjectivity.
Not quite sure how I'd read that, but since humans evolved with brains that have language and started asking questions about what this or that is, where did it comne from, etc etc, we can't help continuing in this way.
