objective I, 54
II, 306 (modal objectivity cannot be reduced to modal conformity to law), 413, 483

Sometimes Dooyeweerd uses ‘objective’ as meaning that all people have the same experience. for example, he says, ” I know that my sense of taste is objective in that all normally developed people must receive the same taste.” (II, 413). Or he refers to the individual objective sensory image of perception (II, 483).

This is a different use of objectified,’ but it is related, since subject and object relations occur within ontical a priori conditons, and these are the same for everyone.

In I, 54, he refers to a “higher objective judge.” But that also makes sense in that the objective always incorporates the lower.
