Phrenology, or, The doctrine of the mental phenomena by J. G Spurzheim( Book )

30 editions published between 1832 and 1855 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first publication presented to the English public under the title The Physiognomical System, contained several summary views of different branches of anthropology, which can be appreciated only after having been examined with great attention in all their details. Several chapters required more development, but the volume was already too large. I, therefore, after the second edition was sold, deemed it advisable to publish several chapters as separate works, and to give another arrangement to my English publications. In one volume, I gave an abstract of the anatomy of the brain, ?in another, I treated of the deranged manifestations of the mind; ?in a third, of the elementary principles of education, and I now publish two volumes on phrenology. In the first, I examine the physiological, and in the second the philosophical part of phrenology. Both these kinds of inquiries are inseparable from each other in the study of mental phenomena. We must first possess positive observations before we are allowed to reason but being acquainted with a sufficient number of facts, we may draw from them philosophical conclusions"--Préface.

"The word Physiognomy, considered etymologically, signifies the knowledge of nature at large. Sometimes, however, it is employed to designate the configuration, and, even more commonly, the expression of the countenance. In another sense, again, it is used to imply a knowledge of the external signs which proclaim internal qualities. It is in the latter acceptation that I shall employ the term in this volume. Entire nature, therefore, may be comprehended in the study of physiognomy; inanimate objects as well as living beings are included: there is, for instance, a physiognomy of the heavens: some forms and characters of clouds portend wind, certain others rain, others thunder, others fine weather, & c"--Introduction.
