In my talk, I will discuss Husserl’s views on the relation between communication and communalization and show how Husserl considered mutual communicative address to result in a social unification that he called a communicative community “Mitteilungsgemeinschaft”. In my talk I will address topics such as reciprocal empathy, communicative intertwinement, and the role of the I-you nexus, and argue that Husserl’s analysis converges with much more recent ideas defended by Margaret Gilbert and Naomi Eilan.
