Product Description

Review

'... a readable, thoroughly referenced, and bibliographically up-to-date introduction to phrenology's historical and historiographical contexts of debate.' Notes and Records of the Royal Society '... provides an engaging and well-referenced account of phrenology's role in the development of British scientific naturalism during the 1800s.' Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences 'The careful and thoughtful research recorded here makes the book a basic resource for historians interested in both phrenology and the struggle for authority in British culture among scientists, evangelicals and many other would-be cultural leaders.' British Journal for the History of Science
