This chapter presents a characterization of our knowledge of our own actions, and provides an account which is true to this characterization. It considers alternative accounts in order to facilitate the construction and motivation of the positive account that is offered. A critical element of the account offered is that our perceptual faculties, including bodily awareness, should not be viewed as direct sources for our knowledge of our actions, or at least of our basic actions.

Keywords:   self-knowledge, actions, bodily awareness, positive account
