Author’s prime aim is to introduce the concept of cognitive body agency into cognitive sociology. This is going to be obtained in three steps. First, a brief review of cognitive sociology will be given with regards to the absence of the concept of carnal body due to a complete occupation of the discipline with ‘the body from the neck up’. Secondly, several reasons for the absence of the concept of carnal body in sociology in general will be given. Thirdly, author will give the arguments for the concept of cognitive body agency by referring to the communication theory and by accepting the body as a material force in its right.

Keywords: Cognitive Body Agency, Cognitive Sociology, Cognitive Mindscape, Communication Theory, Carnal Body
