|Intersubjectivity: intersubjectivity is the mutual recognition of an inner life by conscious subjects. The precondition is the conscious recognition of one's own inner life by a subject, as well as the assumption that other subjects share the main features of the inner constitution which the subject identifies in itself.

Intersubjectivity is used by some authors as a substitute for an objectivity, which is regarded as unachievable._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.
