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. These include language, sensation of pain, memory capability, the drive for self-preservation, and certain interests. Intersubjectivity is used by some authors as a substitute for an objectivity, which is regarded as unachievable.
