He is best known for being one of the main proponents of the interest in phrenology at that time. This title, originally published in 1922 contains the reflections of the author on his experience as a physician specialising in nervous and mental disorders. He looks at a range of patients suffering from character defects leading to moral failings... finding that these cases of moral derangement come in all kinds. Very much of its time, he suggests that treating the causes should be with both physical and mental measures, including psychotherapy, which at the time consisted of persuasion, suggestion, auto-suggestion, hypnotism, psychological analysis, as well as re-education. A fascinating glimpse into psychology from the early twentieth century.
