Subjectivity Frank I 132f
Subjectivity/Nagel: the fact that it is somehow avoids the attribution of a separate aspect such as quality. - NagelVsReductionism: the way something is cannot be reduced.
Nagel III 116 ff
Subjective/Objective/Gradual/Nagel: so the distinction is relative! (Polarity, continuum, respects: space, time, opportunities, scales). - E.g. a universal human perspective is more objective than that of an indidvidual, but less objective than a physical one. - Subjectivity: not necessarily something private -> Intersubjectivity. - Objectivity: you cannot approach it by expansion of the imagination. - III 120
Problem: for physical objectivity, the subject depends on those of its own components that it deems most suitable.
III 28ff
Subjectivity/Completeness/Objectivity/Reality/Nagel: since scrambled eggs taste like something for a cockroach and we will never know how (because we cannot imagine), we must say: either a) that the subjective qualities are not part of reality (absurd) or - b) that not everything that is real is part of the objective world. - Reality/Nagel: thesis: reality is not only the objective reality.
III 30
The world is neither my world nor ours. (This does not even apply to the mental world).
