1 edition published in 1873 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume expounds this science of the mind, analyzes each of its Faculties, gives their right and wrong, and thereby virtuous and vicious modes of action, and applies its teachings to all the great and little problems and interests of humanity. Phrenology, by analyzing these mental fountains of all things human, reveals all those streams which do and should flow there from; besides also disclosing the model man, and thereby showing all persons, all communities, just wherein, and how far, they conform to and depart from this perfect type; that is, wherein each lives a life perfect or imperfect. A science which achieves all this, must soon become the great study of the whole race, and so remain "till time shall be no longer." Part I. The Organism discusses man's organic relations generally, including the fundamental principles of life; the structure of the mind; the principles, proofs, facts,and history of Phrenology; the Temperaments, and applies all to Self-Improvement. Part II. Health, its Value, Laws, Organs, Functions, Means, Preservation, and Restoration, shows all how to get and keep themselves and families well, without doctors or medicines; and analyzes and illustrates all the physical functions. Part III. The Animal Propensities and Selfish Sentiments, analyzes those self-caring instincts which supply personal wants, look out well for self, and create man's affectional, governmental, aspiring, and other sentiments,which it describes in five degrees of power -- Large, Full, Average, Moderate, and Small, along with the different effects on character and conduct of their combinations with the other Faculties in their different degrees of power. This feature, which appertains to this entire work, yet is found nowhere else, is especially interesting and instructive, as causing and disclosing the endless shadings and diversities of human character and conduct. Part IV. Man's Moral Nature, analyzes those Moral Faculties which both render him a religious being, place him in relation with all the theological, ethical, and spiritual truths of the whole universe, and unfold all their relations and dependencies, including all those ranges of religious doctrines and practices they involve; thereby developing an entirely new system of Natural Theology, solving all moral problems with scientific authority, and furnishing an exhaustless storehouse of religious truth. Religion is just as much an exact natural science as mathematics, because both are equally governed by those natural laws which render all they regulate "exact;" and Part IV demonstrates religious science. Does not such an exposition of such a subject, from the stand point of the moral constitution of man, merit attention from all Christians, infidels, and savans? Part V. Intellect, Memory, and Reason, analyzes and shows how to cultivate all the intellectual Faculties, which it describes in five degrees of power, and shows how to prosecute intellectual and juvenile education, and develop scholarship and memory, eloquence and reason -- man's highest gifts! Part VI. A Right Life, individual and communitarian, applies these principles and teachings to progress and reform, private and public, by showing wherein this, that, and the other custom and institution harmonize and conflict with human Nature, and from what to what they require to be changed, added to, and amended"--Preface.
