The paper offers a critical examination of Jennifer Hornsby’s view that actions are internal to the body. Three of Hornsby’s arguments in favour of R are then examined. It is argued that we need to make a distinction between the causes and the causings of bodily movements (in the ordinary sense of the word movement ) and that actions ought to be identified with the latter rather than the former. This distinction is then used to show how Hornsby’s arguments for (R) may be resisted.
