This clearly written and broad-ranging text introduces and explains the notion of intersubjectivity as a central concern of philosophy, sociology, psychology and politics. The main purpose of the book is to provide a coherent framework for this important concept against which the various and contrasting debates can be more clearly understood. Beyond this, Nick Crossley provides a critical discussion of intersubjectivity as an interdisciplinary concept to shed light on our understanding of selfhood, communication, citizenship, power and community.With unusual breadth and clarity the author traces the contributions of many key thinkers engaged within the intersubjectivist tradition, including Husserl, Buber, Koj[gr]eve, Merleau-Ponty, Mead, Wittgenstein, Schutz and Habermas.Intersubjectivity is an important and accessible volume which promotes cooperation between various disciplines addressing shared concerns. It will prove invaluable to students and academics across the social sciences and philosophy.

`Nick Crossley ends his important new book on intersubjectivity hoping that he has identified, clarified, and provoked thought about some of the most central philosophical and human science issues of our time..Crossley, indeed, amply delivers on his intentions, and I recommend the book highly' - Journal of Phenomenological Psychology
