A Subjective Objection: Objecting to Subjection

Interplay of Questions Enabling Transcendence of Fundamental Dilemmas?
The following schema uses as a framework the classic pattern of seven WH-questions to highlight the contrasting significance of terms whose root is either “subject” or “object”. The interest in this mode of inquiry derived from early participation in the Committee on Conceptual and Terminological Analysis (COCTA). The Committee was notably attentive to missing interpretations in use of terms, whether or not they were present in languages other than English.
That involvement gave rise to various explorations of prefixes (New Paradigms via a Renewed Set of Prefixes? Dependence of international policy-making on an array of operational terms, 2003; Exploration of Prefixes of Global Discourse: Implications for sustainable confidelity, 2011; Primary Global Reserve Currency: the Con? Cognitive implications of a prefix for sustainable confidelity, 2011).
In such a light, the following are useful questions, although others might be envisaged. Individual questions may well suggest several interpretations.
