Left- and right-handedness

Abstract

There are many concepts prevalent in the world today the meaning of which has evolved over a long period of time, and which have been influenced by mythology, fable, legend, and belief. It should be possible to trace the historical evolution of these concepts. It is with this thought in mind that the writer has attempted to show the historical origins of the concept of "right handed" superiority, as a demonstration of the process of the natural evolution of a social concept.
