It is a very important theoretical question how to understand the concepts of subject and object, as well as their methodological significance. 1 Subject and Object Concepts of subject and object have different meanings within different fields of philosophy and other social sciences. For example, “subject” could be used as 2 See Frondizi, What is Value: An Introduction to Axiology, Lianjing Press of Taiwan, 1986, p. 118. This term is quoted from The Meaning of the World by Prof. Li Lianke (People’s Press, 1986).

Concepts of subjective and objective are based on the nature and characteristics of human consciousness and thought. “Subjective” simply pertains to “consciousness being aware of”, and “objective” to “object or state of which consciousness is aware”. The former bears meanings of “characteristics inherent in or dependent on human consciousness”, and the latter bears meanings of “characteristics irrelevant to or independent of human consciousness”. “Consciousness being aware of” has a nature familiar with that of human consciousness, such as the reflecting and responding nature of sense, perception and notion, the abstractness and isolation of thinking, the intent and freedom among perceptions or ideas.
