SOLIS ZEPEDA, María Luisa. The religious subject and intersubjectivity. Tóp. Sem [online]. 2019, n.41, pp.129-146. ISSN 2594-0619.

The religious subject is defined and specified by the singular sphere of action he performs, and which is basically to re-link himself to the divine and to fellow man. Other actions are diversifying: one of them, for example, is to transform the enunciative field. From this field of egocentric character, a subject “the self” —as a form, deixis and incarnation of the speaking subject (preaching-assertion)— defines and controls a field in which “the self” is precisely the center itself. The egocentric field is characteristic of many of the natural languages, as well as of thought, in the West. However, there are other languages and other long-standing ways of thinking about and conceiving the world; in short, other significant practices and ways of life in which the center is not placed on the subject-self, but in the subject-other and particularly in the subject-you, who thus constitute an altered-central field, which is the foundation, for example, of ethics, democracy and of various instituted religions —one of which will be the principle basis for this work. Now, that subject-self, charged with subjectivity (of interests, desires and own affections), by placing the emphasis on the “other” or on the “you”, not on one’s own subjectivity, but on the other’s —and taking the subjectivity of the other as its own—, establishes a full intersubjective relationship.
