PARENOLOGY is the science, which treats of the intellectual faculties, moral feelings, and propensities of man; and it unfolds the laws of their exercise and manifestation, as connected with physical organization. The term Phrenology is derived from two Greek words, which signify mind and discourse.
It has grown up out of a most laborious collection and comparison of facts, in accordance with the Baconian, or inductive system, relying for its truth upon the uniformity of natural laws.
Dr. Gall, a distinguished physician of Vienna, was the founder of the science, and devoted most of his time and attention to this great work for nearly forty years. Dr. Spurzheim was for many years associated with Dr. Gall in his labors, and devoted himself to the science for more than thirty years. The degrees, in which each contributed towards rearing the science, together with the assistance rendered by others, from time to time, will be found by a perusal of their works, which contain the history of their discoveries.
