Definition : Objectivity is a philosophical concept of being true independently from individual subjectivity caused by perception, emotions, or imagination.

A proposition is considered to have objective truth when its truth conditions are met without bias caused by a sentient subject.

Scientific objectivity refers to the ability to judge without partiality or external influence, sometimes used synonymously with neutrality.
