Bodily immunity to error

Abstract : Are bodily self-ascriptions immune to error through misidentification? According to the Inside mode view, one cannot be mistaken about whose body part it is when experiencing them from the inside. Here I shall consider two possible objections to bodily immunity. On the one hand, I shall briefly envisage two cases of misidentification: somatoparaphrenia (i.e. patients who deny the ownership of their own limb despite feeling sensations in it) and the Rubber Hand illusion (i.e. illusory feeling of ownership towards a rubber hand). I shall show that none of them challenges the immunity principle. On the other hand, I shall highlight a more serious issue for bodily immunity, namely, the multimodal nature of bodily self-knowledge. Very few bodily self-ascriptions are based on grounds that are purely or exclusively from the inside. I shall evaluate the consequences of multimodality for bodily immunity.
