I, Ego, Self Frank I 76
Ego/Descartes/Anscombe: has asserted the non-identity of his self with a body.
This argument only works in the first person! Everyone has to proclaim it in the form of "I'm not a body".
More precisely, Descartes should have said, "I am not Descartes." For the proper name Descartes denominates nothing but a person.
Frank I 84
Ego/Descartes/Anscombe: not a kind of body. I might assume that I have no body.
