'Shared Agency and Motor Representation'

ABSTRACT
 
Shared agency is paradigmatically involved when two or more people paint a house together, tidy the toys away together, or lift a two-handled basket together.  To characterise shared agency, some philosophers have appealed to a special kind of intention or structure of intention, knowledge or commitment often called 'shared intention'.  In this talk I shall argue that fully characterising shared agency may additionally require appeal to  motor representation.  Shared agency is not only a matter of what we intend: sometimes it also depends on interlocking structures of motor representation.  This may have consequences for some metaphysical, normative and phenomenological questions about shared agency.
