Is raising one's arm a basic action?

Journal of Philosophy 64 (9):235-249 (1972)
Abstract
I hold no view as to what actions are basic, but I shall attempt to show in what follows that actions like raising an arm never are. My contention is that these actions involve actions of physical exertion on the part of the agent, the involvement being of a sort generally taken to be excluded by an actions being basic.
