Review of Naomi Eilan & Johannes Roessler (eds.), Agency and Self-Awareness: Issues in Philosophy and Psychology [Book Review]

The Human Nature Review 3:346-8 (2003)
On hearing a sound behind me I may turn my head in order to see what is happening. This piece of behaviour is a deliberate action, one which feels to be under my own control. If asked what I am doing, I will be able to provide an immediate and knowledgeable answer, viz. 'turning my head' or maybe 'looking to see what is going on'. Not only do I know that an action is taking place, I know which action is taking place, and I know who the agent of that action is.
