True.  But if you make experience the causal link between forms of social
practice and psychological forms and you then locate experience within the
individual (no matter how objective) you are on the same problematic path.

If you state that experience and the environment are "one" and unmediated
by anything else the person contributes AND you state that there is a
single world you have a dualistic problem.
