Example text

In the face-to-face situation the fellowman and I were partners in a concrete We-relation. He was present in person, with a maximum of symptoms by which I could apprehend his conscious life. In the community of space and time we were attuned to one another; his Self reflected mine ; his experiences and my experiences formed a common stream, our experience; we grew older together. As soon as my fellowman leaves, however, my experience of him undergoes a transformation. I know that he is in some Here and Now of his own, and I know that his Now is contemporaneous with mine, but I do not participate in it, nor do I share his Here.

SOCIAL WORLD AND SOCIAL ACTION 15 This short and incomplete analysis of a rather trivial example shows the great complications inherent in the problem of the social act, but also gives an idea of the extension of the field to be explored by a theory of action worthy of its name. We do not intend to enter further into this topic here but we must draw some conclusions from our example concerning the role of the subjective point of view for the actor in the social world. The social world in which I live as one connected with others through manifold relations is for me an object to be interpreted as meaningful.

But the observer cannot be certain that this is really the case. As long as he remains a mere observer, he is not in a position to verify his interpretation of the Other's experiences by checking them against the Other's own subjective interpretations. And yet, the facility with which the observer can transform himself into a partner in a face-to-face social relation places him in a privileged position relative to the collection of knowledge about social reality. The observed individual can become a fellow-man who may be questioned, while a mere contemporary is not within my reach Here and Now, and a predecessor is, of course, forever beyond interrogation.
