What are facts? In themselves, even if correct and not distorted by personal or political bias, facts cannot only be meaningless, they can be untrue by their very selection, taking attention away from what is relevant, or scattering and fragmenting one’s thinking so much that one is less capable of making meaningful decisions the more „information“ one has received. The selection of facts implies evaluation and choice. (…)

To put it briefly, „facts“ are interpretations of events, and the interpretation presupposes certain concerns which constitute the event’s relevance. The crucial question is to be aware of what my concern is and hence of what the facts have to be in order to be relevant. (…) ― What I want to show is that the one fact from which we start means nothing without the evaluation of the whole system, which means an analysis of a process in which we as observers are also included. ― (1968: The Revolution of Hope. Toward a Humanized Technology, New York (American Mental Health Foundation) 2010, pp. 52-54.)
