The fragile person

The following is one type of solutuion to the problem of a person being understood only as an anonymous historical "object." First collect the facts about every person in the world. Pick a fact and look at its description. If there is a logical fact that makes up "objective independent reality", then put that fact under that category. If there are no logical facts of independent reality, then create a new category of facts that constitute "examples of personal, subjective reality", for example from a conversation, my name is Tom. Sort all facts into each of the two categories.

The end result will prove the Confucian truth that each person is not really historically anonymous either in death or life.
