Right Hand, Left Hand: The Origins of Asymmetry in Brains, Bodies, Atoms and Cultures
Chris McManus (au)
Answers familiar, simple questions about handedness and asymmetry: Why are most people right-handed? Do left-handers behave differently from right-handers? Why don’t identical twins always have the same dominant hand? Why is the heart on the left-hand side of the body? Why is each side of the human brain different? Why does European writing go from left to right, while Arabic scripts go from right to left? What is the relationship between handedness and speech disorders such? Why do clocks go clockwise? Uses unique sources: the paintings of Rembrandt and the drawings of Leonardo, the history of medicine, cognitive science, molecular biol., and particle physics to explain the vast repertoire of ‘left-right’ symbolism that permeates our lives.
