But the important fact in this context is that irrationality is only one side of the problem. That is why Schleiermacher continues as follows: […] but we are also forced to recognize between the different languages a larger or more limited common domain of understanding [Verständigung]. e. in different languages, larger or smaller circles intersecting each other, thus separating a common domain from what is particular. (Dial, 169) This means that we have irrationality (or difference) on one side, but we have understanding (or identity) on the other.

A universal coherence of the knowing [des Wissens] is not thinkable without a construction of what is individual and without finding the relation between individuality and identity.
