All human beings have ability to reflect and respond, said Professor T.K. Oommen, Emirates professorof Sociology, from JNU. He was talking to students of sociology department, Kamala Nehru College as a part of annual lecture titled “Is objectivity possible in social science?” to permit an exchange of perception on the challenges faced by society, held on Tuesday. At the outset of the lecture, Prof. Oommen observed that Culture being a complex term can be understood only through reflexibility. He supported his facts with exciting examples.
Culture is the ability to create symbols which convey meaningful messages and can be experienced only by investigating reality, he opined. He added that objectivity in culture to take place can be in two types-Intra-subjectivity and Inter-subjectivity. Intra-subjectivity is when two investigators get the same result examining the same phenomena, given the conditions that the phenomenon change and investigator value, both are constant. Inter-subjectivity is when two investigators examine the same phenomena with same value at the same time and hence, the result will also be the same.
He also said that it is necessary for one of these phenomena to occur for objectivity to be achieved. He also included by saying, to attain objectivity, the term itself has to be categorized in-Generalization and Particularization and which category to choose, depends on the sociologist. Explaining the same, further he said, that the change in phenomena along with the investigatory values connected to it, results in objectivity. Meanwhile, interacting with the students, he concluded by saying, “a society is a process.”
