1. The idea of objectivity is nonsense. There is only the subject. He is always a subject in the world. As a man of the world what must be demanded of him is honesty, integrity, character, and courage. A man who philosophizes or investigates or creates must be assessed as to these qualities ― how he has consistently demonstrated these qualities in his life ― for the truth and value of his work is decided upon them.

2. The most dishonest of biases is self-preservation. When he has allowed himself to become raw, totally unguarded and insecure ― without the deepest bias to keep himself alive ― at that moment a man sees clearly.

3. It is not objectivity, but honesty, that is necessary. Indeed, the idea of objectivity is perhaps the most dishonest idea, hiding the most profound of dishonesties.
