- Subjectivity includes the possibility, for example, that some elements or impulses are subjectively active — they move us — without being consciously known.... It focuses on the "who I am" or, as important, the "who we are" of culture. ... Consciousness embraces the notion of a consciousness of self and an active mental and moral self-production.
