Identity/I/Chisholm: results from direct attribution; if x directly assigns something to y, then x is identical with y. - Everyone has privileged access - but we do not explain it by the use of I, but vice versa: the use of the pronoun by direct attribution. - primary use of I am: someone says of himself that he himself ... - pronoun: does not express any part of the content.
