What do Weather Watchers See? Perceptual Intentionality and Agency

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearch

This paper defends a twofold thesis. First, contra Galen Strawson's recent claims, we argue that a subject's ability to perceive spatial objects essentially presupposes that the subject has an experience of her own voluntary movements. Second, we argue that while there is good reason to say that this subjective movement is a kind of agency, it would, pace certain other authors, be wrong to use the term "action" for it.
