... A term used primarily in phenomenological sociology to refer to the mutual constitution of social relationships. It suggests that people can reach consensus about knowledge or about what they have experienced in their life-world —at least as a working agreement if not a claim to objectivity . An excellent overview is Nick Crossley ’s Intersubjectivity: The Fabric of Social Becoming ...

... An intersubjective property is one on which the opinion of different subjects does or can coincide. If this is so because the subjects simply happen to share some nature, the property may be thought to fall short of full objectivity. Thus aesthetic tastes may be intersubjective, in the sense that we respond to things similarly, but not objective, if the fact that we do so owes as much to an accidental coincidence of taste as to the nature of the object. See primary/secondary qualities , relativism , subjectivism/objectivism...

... The state of subjectivity—one’s individual perspective, understanding, and feelings, for example—being shared by more than one conscious mind. It indicates an overlap between our subjective worlds that enables communication and the sharing of meaning and understanding. The degree of agreement between subjects can also be used to denote more widely shared or common understandings. Without intersubjectivity, communication would be very challenging. However, intersubjectivity also indicates the partial nature of the overlap between conscious...

... 1. The process and product of sharing experiences, knowledge , understandings, and expectations with others: a key feature of social constructionism , symbolic interactionism, and phenomenological approaches generally. The existence, nature, and meaning of things is not entirely up to the individual but subject to social and linguistic constraints within a culture or subculture (there has to be some degree of consensus or communication would be impossible; see also linguistic turn ).

... Concerns the relations between people, rather than within them (subjectivity) or beyond them (objectivity or transcendental reality). More generally, it describes a broad trend in twentieth-century philosophy and social science that privileges communication between people and shared understanding over individual consciousness and concepts of objective knowledge. The work of Johann Gottfried von Herder , Wilhelm Humboldt , and Georg Hegel helped pave the way for this work by critiquing philosophies of autonomous subjectivity—especially...

...intersubjectivity The state of being perceived, interpreted, measured or understood from a second-person point of view; subjectivity shared by two or more minds together ( we, us ). Cf the mind–world dichotomy of self and other necessarily implied by the categories ‘objective’ and ‘subjective’. Unproblematically, in a general sense, intersubjectivity is merely the shared meanings developed between people with similar experiences. A stronger philosophical sense raises the problem of other minds ( see objectivity...

...of subjectivity. The question facing such theorists is whether intersubjectivity is definable without pre-supposing an objective environment in which communication takes place (the ‘wiring’ from Subject A to Subject B). At a less fundamental level, however, the need for intersubjective verification of scientific hypotheses has been long recognized. Prof. Jan Narveson See also subjectivism . D. Davidson , Subjective, Intersubjective, Objective (Oxford,...

...Norris, in an attack upon Lyotard, accuses him of deliberately skewing Kant's philosophy in order to achieve ‘a wholesale aestheticisation of ethical discourse which redefines “autonomy” in private-individualistic terms, and which blocks the appeal to any wider community of intersubjective understanding’ ( Reclaiming Truth , 41). From some feminist quarters comes the accusation that postmodernism is a male phenomenon that has succeeded in ‘reconstituting an overwhelmingly male pantheon of proper names to function as ritual objects of academic exegesis and...
