Adamís Navel: A Natural & Cultural History of the Human Form
Michael Sims (au); Juliet Borda (il). Blends cultural history with evolutionary theory to produce an original narrative in which Sims analyzes & demystifies the visible parts of the body that make up the whole -- our animal form, the screen onto which we project our fears & obsessions. Readers encounter not only accessible explanations of the mechanics of their anatomy, but also the layers of mythology, religious lore, history, Darwinian theory, & pop culture that have helped to shape our understanding of any given body part. For the human hand, for ex., we learn how the tiny nerve endings work, as well as the history of the handshake, the discovery of fingerprints, the connection between hand movement & lang., & even how Proust regarded our hands. An original book! Illus.
