"Sir James Mackintosh (24 October 1765 ľ 30 May 1832) was a Scottish jurist, Whig politician and historian. His studies and sympathies embraced many interests. He was trained as a doctor and barrister, and worked also as a journalist, judge, administrator, professor, philosopher and politician." "He went in 1780 to King's College, University of Aberdeen, where he made a lifelong friend of Robert Hall, later a famous preacher. In 1784 he began to study medicine at Edinburgh University. He participated to the full in the intellectual ferment, became friendly with Benjamin Constant, but did not quite neglect his medical studies, and took his degree in 1787. In 1788 Mackintosh moved to London, then agitated by the trial of Warren Hastings and the first lapse into insanity of George III. He was much more interested in these and other political events than in his professional prospects."

B. Sampson delivered at a general meeting of the British Homeopathic Association, together with a report of the proceedings of the meeting, (1849) )." "The work remains significant today for the study of correctional history and the use of phrenology by some nineteenth century reformers to explain criminal acts." The book takes a homeopathic / phrenological approach to identifying criminals. "It usually happens that those questions which are of the greatest importance to the welfare of mankind are the last to become the subjects of general public discussion...Among the subjects which have of late, in this way, been forced upon the public attention, that of Criminal Jurisprudence has been the most conspicuous...It is now acknowledged as an unquestionable truth, that all the manifestations of the mind, including the feelings and the passions, are dependent upon the conformation and state of health of its material instrument, the brain."
