I have an S4 class "B" (Base) which defines a function f=f(this="B",...) 
Dervided from B we have a derived class D which also defines a function f=f(this="D",...)

In the definition of D::f we want to call the version B::f and could do this by simply calling


The question is the following:

How do I refer to the base class object from the derived class?

Many thanks
