No hard and fast line can be drawn between our own selves and the selves of others, since our own selves exist and enter as such into our experience only in so far as the selves of others exist and enter as such into our experience also. [164]

The only way in which we can react against the disapproval of the entire community is by setting up a higher sort of community which in a certain sense out-votes the one we find…. We are not simply bound by the community. [167-8]

The self… is, so to speak, an eddy in the social current and so still a part of that current. [182]
