Intersubjectivity and the Conceptualization of Communication.
Treating views of communication through consideration of contrasting conceptions of intersubjectivity is possible because the two domains are articulated in different terms and are at the same time closely identified. There are three images of intersubjectivity that reflect the dominant ways in which the dichotomy of the individual and the social has been conceived and reconciled: (1) as absolutely separated, independent terms brought together; (2) as terms existing in interaction with one another; (3) or as terms in a hierarchical relation of constitution. Each of these images presents three different ways of asking the question of how communication is possible. Two alternative answers to each of the three forms of the question of communication generate six discrete views within which the transcendence of the individuality of meaning in communication is accounted for.
