ShoemakerVsHume: 1st shows no more than that, as I find myself, I can not know - the second premise is false: although there is no index-free description, that does not prove that I would need such - for identification the possibility of errors is necessary - but this is not given in the case of the self - anyway regress in self-identification - Hume did not deny self-consciousness / Shoemaker: no kind of perception! (Rorty ditto) - Pain: no (private) object, a person is not pain, and it is not painful, but one feels pain.
