Abstract and Keywords
This chapter will focus on ‘bodily feelings’, which express the various facets of the enduring relation that the subject has with her body in relation to the world. In particular, it will focus on three such feelings: the feeling of bodily presence, the feeling of bodily capacities, and the feeling of bodily ownership. After describing these bodily feelings in more detail, we will ask to what extent they are feelings at all, and if they are, how to best interpret their phenomenology: in sensory, affective, cognitive, or even metacognitive terms?
