DAVIDS, K and ARAÚJO, D (2010). The concept of ‘Organismic Asymmetry’ in sport science. Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport, 13 (6), 633-640.Full text not available from this repository.
The concept of organismic asymmetry refers to an inherent bias for seeking explanations of human performance and behaviour based on internal mechanisms and referents. A weakness in this tendency is a failure to consider the performer–environment relationship as the relevant scale of analysis. In this paper we elucidate the philosophical roots of the bias and discuss implications of organismic asymmetry for sport science and performance analysis, highlighting examples in psychology, sports medicine and biomechanics
