In this paper I'll review neuropsychological, physiological and behavioral findings of about the last 30 years concerning the difference between our cognitive map of the external space and the spatial map we generate according to our sensorimotor experience. More properly, I'll use available data to underline that while the former space is depicted around a thinking subject, the latter space is elaborated around an acting subject. Finally, stated the interdisciplinary of the debate concerning spatial representation, I'll contribute to the debate by enriching the discussion of findings from psychology and neuroscience with the contribution of some relevant intuitions from philosophy.
