Small Phrenology Bust. Antique Effect Phrenology Ceramic Head H: 15cm Study of Phrenology: A hypothesis stating that the personality traits of a person can be derived from the shape of the skull. It is now considered a Pseudoscience. Developed by German physician Franz Joseph Gall in 1796, the discipline was very popular in the 19th century. Phrenology is based on the concept that the brain is the organ of the mind and that certain brain areas have localized, specific functions or modules. Phrenologists believed that the mind has a set of different mental faculties, with each particular faculty represented in a different area of the brain. These areas were said to be proportional to a person s propensities, and the importance of the given mental faculty. It was believed that the cranial bone conformed in order to accommodate the different sizes of these particular areas of the brain in different individuals, so that a person s capacity for a given personality trait could be determined simply by measuring the area of the skull that overlies the corresponding area of the brain.
