CD/mp3 422. The second part of a lecture delivered the Thomas More Institute, Montreal, on 29 September 1964, as the opening lecture in a course entitled ‘Philosophic Positions with Regard to Knowing.’ Questions and responses are also included. Corresponds to cwl 6: 226-43. Sponsored by The Danaher Family of Brisbane, Australia. The topics covered in the second part of the lecture are the objectivity of knowing and the relation of knowing to intersubjectivity. The second on objectivity emphasizes that, just as knowing is a set of activities, so objectivity has a set of properties that correspond to the types of activities that constitute knowing: experiential, normative, and absolute objectivity. Contrasts are drawn with naive realist and Kantian positions. The section on intersubjectivity pleads that the emphasis on subjectivity and intersubjectivity not result in a neglect of objectivity and of its importance. The questions cover many of the points made in the lecture.
