Indeed. Even though he is too pessimistic in saying that "cannot
accept that we cannot exist". We should say "we cannot avoid making
use of reflexive indicators", but there are plenty of other useful,
understandable and practical concepts to which no "essence" really
corresponds. Why should one's "self" be an exception? Most of dualism
can easily be reduced to linguistic short-circuits and paradoxes...
