Could anyone help me with the pharse 'referential transparency' in the following paragraph? Thanks a lot.
In attempting to prioritize for discussion the ‘objective’ journalist’s claim of referential transparency, this issue of how relations of patriarchy inform the ‘discipline of objectivity’ as seemingly apolitical (genger-neutral) normative ideal is critical.
I would guess that it means one has declaired all their sources for the material they are writing.
I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
