This paper analyses one of the key topics that Gabriel Marcel was occupied with, namely intersubjectivity, that according to this French philosopher can be realised only when we are mutually available (disponsibilé), in other words when we can experience each other as a subject, or to be more precise as a person. The main question „Does Marcel’s teaching contribute to the preservation of authenticity of persons?“ has a positive answer. Life, as seen by Marcel, is based on experience acquired thanks to the body, communion, communication and relations with the others. Marcel thinks that it is possible to believe that the other person is a conscious being, without seeing and experiencing them as such. Therefrom the conclusion that a person experiences the others as a subject only when they experience them as a co-being. Additionally Marcel questions what it means to experience the others as a subject, but also what it means to be seen as a subject from the perspective of some other subject. Answering that question he criticizes the traditional Cartezian understanding of mind. Furthermore he concludes that intersubjectivity is more than selfconsciousness. In order to aqcuire a complete insight into Marcel’s understanding of intersubjective reletions we had to elaborate the most important related terminology – embodiment, being in situation, availability and creative fidelity.
