So, of those three properties — asymmetry, handedness, and enantiomorphy —
which is extrinsic, and which intrinsic? Because asymmetry, or lack of it, seems to
be determined entirely by internal relations between the parts of an object, this ...

At various points in his career, Kant sought to relate the phenomenon of
handedness, or enantiomorphy, to the nature of space, initially seeking an
argument from the existence of enantiomorphic counterparts to the existence of
absolute space ...

enantiomorphy (or local anything else of the kind) is a recessive 'property' relative
to the corresponding global one. My actual concrete left hand is 'locally
enantiomorphic' relative to a neighbourhood, a part of space, which contains

their difficulties with enantiomorphy. Compared to a baseline, illiterate adults had
the strongest performance drop for mirror images, whereas for plane rotations the
performance drop was similar across groups. In Experiment 2, participants ...

The first is that we should ask why the relationalist about space is under any
obligation to offer an equivalent, relationally pure definition of enantiomorphy. He
believes that spatial facts are exhausted by the catalogue of relative distances ...

To see how enantiomorphy in vortex generation can be observed in nature, we
return to Schwenk (1965). In the course of his presentation, he depicts the
generation of whole trains of vortices (Fig. 5.9). Figure 5.9(a) shows a
We might seek to avoid reference to space as a unity by resorting to an idea of
local enantiomorphy (see Sklar, p. 181, Earman, pp. 239-40 and Harper, pp. 272-
3, all in Van Cleve and Frederick 1991 ). A hand is locally enantiomorphic iff

The idea of enantiomorphy presents itself on analysis, as we have seen, as an
intimate union of symmetry and dissymmetry. This same necessity for a mixture of
symmetry and dissymmetry is found in the work of Pierre Curie on symmetry in ...

B. Enantiomorphy with a single finite rotocenter In Chapter 2 we gave separate
consideration to three cases having a single rotocenter: one having symmetry
value k = 1, one having 1 < k < °°, and one having k = °°. Since there cannot be
