‘Is it possible to represent things objectively?’ questions how we are to understand scientific representations of the world. The positive aim of objectivity is to create an accurate representation of the world, but objectivity is no guarantee of truth. Whereas truth is absolute and does not come in degrees, objectivity only comes in degrees. The complex interplay between justification and truth is considered as well as the development of views on what the objectivity of a representation consists of. These ideas are discussed through examples of anatomical atlases, photography, pictorial representation, and scientific methods.
