Are there any philosophical disciplines that strictly separate human perception and personal preferences from the actual function and structure of the real world as it exists outside of our conscience? For instance, there is an apparent orderly structure to the universe. We have consistent physical laws. Atoms have predictable properties. Molecules form to become identifiable elements. There is order. Some may say that this indicates a higher, Creator type intellect at work, like ourselves but immortal, perfect, with infinite divinity, omniscient and like a man but superior in every way. Others may say that after a multitude of attempts, the universe itself simply settled into stable patterns, from which we have things like order and our own consciousness. What philosophical discipline would get us closer to the truth so that such thought, when put into regular practice, keeps us well grounded and difficult to fool with manmade constructs? The greater amount of people I have interacted with have a strong tendency to evaluate the world around them from the standpoint of personal preference and trained opinion rather than by how things actually function outside of the human viewer lenses.
