Ontology Sellars I XLIV
Ontology / Sellars: at the end there is an ontology in which there are only processes. Absolute processes: objects are no longer is mentioned. ("It is raining"), the word "it" here represents no object.
Strawson had also considered this idea, and dropped it for the reason, among others, that objectless processes such as lightning or bangs, cannot always be identified directly without the reference to other objects.
