Among the features considered as a hallmark of the researcher is impartiality (objectivity, neutrality). Many scholars have got clearly defined political views or are followers of a religion. Does this not interfere with the study of politics in their own country or their religion/denomination? Is it possible to reconcile one’s views with objectivity in the study of these areas? Can, for example, an American researcher, a Republican, objectively analyze the political program of the Democratic Party, and vice versa? Can, for example, the Protestant objectively examine the principles of their denomination?
