|Outer World: The outer world is accepted as a counter term to the inner world of an individual. The outer world contains objects, facts or situations in which the individual finds herself/himself and which are experienced by her/him as outside of herself/himself. The inner world, on the other hand, contains the reactions, feelings, sensations, memories of the individual himself. Thirdly, the social world, which encompasses the shared contents of individuals in a community, is adopted. This includes language, law, agreements, jointly created and shared content and communication._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.
