This paper discusses some issues touched upon by Elena O. Trufanova in her research on the problem of subject and the status of knowledge in the social constructionism. I focus on the views of Rom Harré and Peter Mühlhäusler who describe the “inner Self” as a linguistic construction and, on the whole, oppose the standpoint of linguistic universalism. In this respect, I also consider the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis assuming that addressing the problem of “the Self” in its linguistic dimension depends to a large extent on the development of interdisciplinary cognitive studies.
