The Role of Subjectivity: Response to Noriyuki Inoue
Walton, Joan
International Journal for Transformative Research, v3 n1 p24-28 Jul 2016
This paper offers a response to Dr. Noriyuki Inoue's article published in this issue of the "International Journal for Transformative" research, entitled "The Role of Subjectivity in Teacher Expertise Development: Mindfully Embracing the 'Black Sheep' of Educational Research." Inoue freely uses the terms "subjectivity" and "objectivity"; but referring to findings from quantum physics and consciousness studies, both of which challenge the view that it is possible to observe a world that exists independently of the observer, I ask whether the Japanese concepts of "jikkan" and "ba" actually also suggest that it is not possible to separate and define subjective and objective dimensions of reality.
