This chapter explores motor-images, self-consciousness, and autism, including mentalizing and executive difficulties in autism; the nature of motor intentions and imagery; action representations, self-consciousness, and understanding the mind; and action representation impairments in autism. It argues that a capacity for action plays a major role in the structuring of a unitary experience of the world and in the development of self-world dualism.
