About this title


This phenomenological investigation of lived experience suggests that human understanding inevitably relies on objectivist comprehensions due to ethical imperatives that are necessitated by communal existence. The analysis also indicates that human understanding and human communication can be considered commensurate processes that are oriented toward maintaining these objectivist comprehensions through the integration of meanings and the reconciliation of disparate meanings.
