Objects Found And Documented
An object is a technical term in modern philosophy often used in contrast to the term subject. A subject is an observer and an object is a thing observed. For modern philosophers like Descartes, consciousness is a state of cognition that includes the subject --which can never be doubted as only it can be the one who doubts-- and some object(s) that may be considered as not having real or full existence or value independent of the subject who observes it.
