We analyzed man's subjective experiences of the Other and found in them the basis for his understanding of the Other's subjective processes of consciousness.

The world is experienced by the Self as being inhabited by other Selves, as being a world for others and of others.

The social world in which man finds himself exhibits a complex structure; fellow-men appear to the Self under different aspects, to which correspond different cognitive styles by which the Self perceives and apprehends the Other's thoughts, motives, and actions.
