I appreciate and

I appreciate and whole-heartedly agree with your comments Paul.  I was trying to make a similar point below, but was far less clear.  Acknowledging that subjectivity exists does not mean resigning to it or letting it run rampant.  Perhaps by trying to recognize our own background and how it affects us, we can do an even better job of minimizing our subjectivity.  Furthermore we can be sure to check ourselves by sharing our stories with others and studying the stories of others.
