    asking about pronoun

    Dear teachers and everybody,

    I have this in mind:

    (A1) There is a mode of subjectivity.
    (A2) That mode of subjectivity unifies differences.

    If I put it in single sentence as:
    There is a mode of subjectivity that unifies differences,

    is it a correct sentence? If it is, wouldn't pronoun 'that' in the sentence be mistaken as referring to subjectivity? Because I read a post somewhere in this forum that a pronoun refers to antecedent immediately preceding it.

    Because I read a post somewhere in this forum that a pronoun refers to the antecedent immediately preceding it. That is a 'rule' that can be moderated by common sense.
