The Body in Motion is a guide, which presents the anatomical design of the human body, revealing how the bodys systems cooperate to form an upright, intelligent, tool-making marvel, capable of great technological and artistic achievements.
The author Theodore Dimon Jr. and illustrator G. David Brown explore our upright system and describes the purpose of the extensors, flexors, spine, and shoulder girdle. Additional systems covered include the hands and upper limbs, the pelvic girdle, the feet and lower limbs, breathing, the larynx and throat musculature of the truck.
This book explains how these systems have helped us build, invent, create art, explore the world, and imbue life with a sacred dimension that would not otherwise exist.
Theodore Ted Dimon Jr. lives in New York City and is director of the Dimon Institute, a center for the study of movement and performance. He was at the Harvard University and received his master’s and doctorate degrees.
