Abstract and Keywords
This chapter links phenomenology with cognitive science. It deals with the “intrinsic temporality” in both bodily movement and action, some of which is experienced, but some of which happens at the subpersonal levels of analysis. The chapter begins with Husserl's dynamic model of retention and protention, extending it to unconscious motor processes too. Bringing empirical studies to support the claims throughout, the discussion then focuses on various timescales in an effort to show how the concept of free will becomes important.
