Privileging the subjective

Soren Kierkegaard distinguishes between objective truth and subjective truth. We can argue empirical (objective) reality while the felt truth of the (subjective) self must be taken at face value.

To deeply understand faith, Jazz music, or falling in love they must be experienced; they cannot be apprehended only through reading or observing.

This leads to a rich set of challenges for how to share and communicate reality with others.
