Abstract:

Contributes to a better understanding of Horace Mann and the educational reform movement he advanced. Head Masters challenges the assumption that phrenology-the study of the conformation of the skull as it relates to mental faculties and character-played only a minor and somewhat anecdotal role in the development of education. Stephen Tomlinson asserts instead that phrenology was a scientifically respectable theory of human nature, perhaps the first solid physiological psychology. He shows that the first phrenologists were among the most prominent scientists and intelle.
