In this chapter, I consider the question of whether there is a bodily experience of agency. In other words, what I aim to uncover is whether there is a way in which we can make sense of the proposal that our proprioceptive experiences, specifically our kinaesthetic experiences, are capable of representing our bodily movements as actions. I argue that if we properly appreciate the role that proprioceptive states play in action control, there is a clear sense in which there is a bodily experience of agency.
