[BioC] equivalent of $this

when programming with R and objects, when you describe a new class or
method, does $this or an equivalent exists ? Sometimes, there is :
function(Object) (So Object is something equivalent to $this ?)
function(.Object) (and .Object too ?)
function(x,i,j,...) (and in this case x was equivalent to $this)
I saw the last case in a redifinition of an existing method for the new
object created by myclass, and if i understand well, if a generic
function was first described with function(x,i,j,...) one will reutilize
it, instead, if it's a new function, one will use Object or either .Object ?
Is that true ?
