iterability of events of the use of signs enables us to resist conceiving them either as the ‘outward surface’ of ‘present acts of consciousness’ (the metaphysics of the subject) or as something reducible to the ‘mere behaviour of an animal organism’ (bald naturalism). Indeed, it will enable us to affirm a fundamentally non-humanist and non-sceptical approach to being with others: in virtue of one’s familiarity with behavioural events which are, in themselves, iterable, what can be manifest when one perceives the behaviour of living things need not fall short of the ‘being there too’ of ‘those among whom one is too’.
